"Four degrees of warming would be enough to melt all the ice... you would have a tremendously chaotic situation as you moved away from our current climate towards another one. That's a different planet. You wouldn't recognise it... We are on the verge of creating climate chaos if we don't begin to reduce emissions rapidly." [Hansen]

When a supposed scientist, James Hansen, calls the use of plentiful, safe, cheap energy an "addiction" you know the deniers are getting desperate. The deniers are those who ignore the lack of anthroglobalclimatewarmingpoge nicchange. They stick to the tired old disproven memes. The Earth is on fire! It's melting, IT'S MELTING! The models show... The consensus is... Yeah, that's my fave there! They all deny the facts are against them. Kinda sad really. James Hansen used to be a respectable fellow. Not some whore for big government.
