James Hansen: “We’re toast…” if we don’t change NOW

Exactly 20 years after warning America about global warming, a top NASA scientist said the situation has gotten so bad that the world’s only hope is drastic action.

James Hansen told Congress on Monday that the world has long passed the “dangerous level” for greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and needs to get back to 1988 levels. He said Earth’s atmosphere can only stay this loaded with man-made carbon dioxide for a couple more decades without changes such as mass extinction, ecosystem collapse and dramatic sea level rises.

“We’re toast if we don’t get on a very different path,” Hansen, director of the Goddard Institute of Space Sciences who is sometimes called the godfather of global warming science, told The Associated Press. “This is the last chance.”

    Wow, you two leggeds are slow. Some, thirty plus years ago those of us who have been outside your “scientific” proof, have been telling you that if you defecate in your own kitchen there is a really good chance that you will get sick. We have also told you that the whole eco-system of which you two leggeds are just one species, is inter-dependent. If the Bear Nation is as you say “endangered” then you are too.
