Climate change is simple: We do something or we’re screwed
Posted on 8 July 2012 by dana1981
A few months ago we posted a TED talk by James Hansen. Recently Grist's Dave Roberts gave a TED talk of his own, essentially discussing that if we don't do something to seriously reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the next 5-10 years, we're screwed.
Roberts provides supporting documentation for his talk here. Note that we generally prefer to take a more positive approach, focusing on the fact that while we're running out of time, we're not out of time just yet, so we can still solve the climate problem.
Nevertheless, Roberts gives a good, simple, straightforward presentation, the general gist of which is certainly accurate. Enjoy.
