Strike while the climate change iron is hot
The small, but financially powerful, klatch of Climate Change deniers must be feeling beleaguered as so much information contrary to their belief system surfaces wildly throughout our media.

While this may make sense politically, I would like to point out that James Hansen's paper does not PROVE AGW or climate change.
No amount of correlation can prove anything. It is more a gimmick to bring attention to the fact that, if we agree that AGW is happening, then the likely mechanism of climate change is being felt in the changed statistics of weather events.
So basing policy on such a study instead of the long term and much more substantial proof of AGW and consequent climate change is a mistake. Practical but a mistake. The decades of serious peer reviewed science and the knowledge of the climate researchers should take precedent here.
Fact is that the denialists are on their last legs and will die out soon. We shouldn't let them set the tone of the debate by lowering ourselves to their standards.
