Dr. James E. Hansen is a leading expert on this topic. I would suggest suspending your previous opinion, watch this lecture, look over this blog and determine what you think the human species should do about the climate problems. POST YOUR OPINION IN A RESPECTABLE MANNER with references where necessary and let's open a dialouge here to see if we, in this generation, can do anything to starve off the coming climate change problem. I really appreciate your effort and opinion. Thanks so much!
This is a great FULL 1.5 hour lecture aimed towards the general public by Dr. James ("Jim") Hansen. He gives a clear and engaged description of the science and the challenges that lies ahead. One of the best talks I've seen.
The talk was recorded at James Hansen's New Zealand tour in spring 2011 at the University of Otago, NZ. http://www.otago.ac.nz
