I didn't think anybody could beat out Al Gore for global-warming hysteria, but this guy takes the prize:
Exactly 20 years after warning America about global warming, a top NASA scientist said the situation has gotten so bad that the world's only hope is drastic action.
James Hansen told Congress on Monday that the world has long passed the "dangerous level" for greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and needs to get back to 1988 levels. He said Earth's atmosphere can only stay this loaded with man-made carbon dioxide for a couple more decades without changes such as mass extinction, ecosystem collapse and dramatic sea level rises.
Mass extinction in 20 years. Those nasty old gasoline prices seem sort of trivial by comparison, eh?
