James Hansen

In case you didn't know, the former head of NASA, James Hansen, has been a climate change advocate since the 1980s.

"We have known since the 1800s that carbon dioxide traps heat in the atmosphere. The right amount keeps the climate conducive to human life."

James Hansen

"Recent warming coincides with rapid growth of human-made greenhouse gases. The observed rapid warming gives urgency to discussions about how to slow greenhouse gas emissions."
