Latest paper on climate change by Jim Hansen

Jim Hansen’s latest paper, shortly to appear in Proceedings from the Natural Academy of Sciences, is comprehensive and well argued. His discussion of the possibility of taking a legal approach to tackling greenhouse gas emissions, taking into account the rights of young people and future generations, ties in with the Feasta climate group’s ideas as described in Sharing for Survival.

Note: Feasta is a forum for exchanging ideas. By posting on its site Feasta agrees that the ideas expressed by authors are worthy of consideration. However, there is no one ‘Feasta line’. The views of the article do not necessarily represent the views of all Feasta members.
