Hansen, NYT Deserve Praise for Standing up to Censorship

In 1988, against the background of Yellowstone National Park in flames, James Hansen, of NASA's Goddard Space Center, went before Congress to declare that “global warming is at hand.”

Last month, Hansen wrote:

The Earth's temperature… is now passing through the peak level of the Holocene, a period of relatively stable climate that has existed for more than 10,000 years. Further warming of more than one degree Celsius will make the Earth warmer than it has been in a million years… That implies practically a different planet. …The Earth's climate is nearing, but has not passed, a tipping point beyond which it will be impossible to avoid climate change with far-ranging undesirable consequences.”
