An Inconvenient Truth -- Update

Back on January 28th, I wrote Cool it on the Climate Warming! in which I described the Bush administrations response to the growing consensus that we are reaching a “tipping point” in the coming ecological disaster of global weather change.

I quoted a N.Y. Times article which began,
The top climate scientist at NASA says the Bush administration has tried to stop him from speaking out since he gave a lecture last month calling for prompt reductions in emissions of greenhouse gases linked to global warming.
The scientist is James Hansen. You can see him in Al Gore’s movie, “An Inconvenient Truth.” He is testifying before then Senator Al Gore’s committee in 1989.

James Hansen has more to say in the New York Review of Books this weekend. Check it out here.

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, do.

“..and tell ’em Big Mitch sent ya!”

Yes, a truly great movie. Energizing to experience it with a large audience, too!
