Dr James Hansen, the world's leading scientist on climate issues, speaks out for the first time with the full truth about global warming: the planet is hurtling to a climatic point of no return. Hansen - whose climate predictions have come to pass again and again, beginning in the 1980s when he first warned US Congress about global warming - is the single most credible voice on the subject worldwide. He paints a devastating but all-too-realistic picture of what will happen if we continue to follow the course we're on. But he is also a hard-headed optimist, and shows that there is still time to take the urgent, strong action needed to save humanity.

  1. Klimatkunnig professors redovisning

    Visar på ett övertygande sätt hur koldioxidutsläppen påverkar oss lokalt och globalt. Framför allt visar J Hansen att det är förödande att stänga ner våra kärnkraftverk.

  2. Läs denna om du bara läser en klimatbok
    Staffan Lindahl, 9 mars 2011

    Bedövande kunnig författare, verksam i detta fält sedan 70-talet, förmodligen världens mest kunnige klimat/atmosfärforskare. Mycket erfarenhet av politiken bakom kulisserna (i USA men också visavi Angela Merkels och andra). Ödmjuk, återhållsam, baserar sin mycket befogade oro på en månfald mätningar, andra forskares granskade mätningar, dvs verklighet, inte på spekulativa datorsimuleringar. Hansen är mer tydlig än andra forskare, "less" på kompomissande och intetsägande utalande. Tro mig inte, läs och bilda dig en egen uppfattning.

'When the history of the climate crisis is written, Hansen will be seen as the scientist with the most powerful and consistent voice calling for intelligent action to preserve our planet's environment.' Al Gore 'Anyone concerned about the world our children and grandchildren must inherit owes it to themselves to read this book' Irish Times 'James Hansen gives us the opportunity to watch a scientist who is sick of silence and compromise; a scientist at the breaking point - the point at which he is willing to sacrifice his credibility to make a stand to avert disaster' LA Times 'Few people know more about climate change than James Hansen ... This unnerving and fluently written book is the definitive one to read' BBC Wildlife
