Climate madness from James Hansen
Greenhouse gas emissions must be cut more quickly and deeply than thought only two years ago to avoid dire consequences [gee, there's a surprise - Ed], and a straight-up carbon tax is the only realistic way to do it, top climate scientist [barking propagandist - Ed] James Hansen says.
New research paints an even gloomier picture of global warming [surely "climate change" - Ed] than the already grim report put out in early 2007 by the UN's Nobel-winning scientific panel, he told AFP at the margins of a major climate conference.
Hansen's argument is as simple as it is sobering: continuing to drain earth's store of fossil fuels - oil, gas and coal - will lead humanity straight toward climate calamity.
Only an abrupt and profound change in the way we consume energy can stop the global warming juggernaut.
