This really is your last warning on global warming
NASA scientist issues dire warning on global warming
WASHINGTON -- "We're toast" is how a top NASA scientist describes the dire condition he predicts if the world doesn't get on a "very different path" regarding global warming.
Exactly 20 years after warning America about the phenomenon, James Hansen says the situation is so bad the world's only hope is drastic action.
Hansen has told a U.S. congressional panel the world has long passed the "dangerous level" for greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and needs to get back to 1988 levels.
He says 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.
Hansen is head of the Goddard Institute of Space Sciences. He's sometimes called the godfather of global warming science.

We are toast, the only hope is drastic action and we are decades away from mass extinction, ecosystem collapse and dramatic sea level rises, all the stuff I've been blogging on for some time now. We are in denial, the worst is to come and let's remember when it does come who should get the blame.
