Jim Hansen's presentation http://www.columbia.edu/~jeh1/threattalk_complete_05Sept2006.pdf (6.6 MB) this summer at the SOLAR 2006 Conference on Renewable Energy in Denver, which he has made available on his Columbia University Web site, integrates a wide range of scientific findings on global climate change with forthright and striking statements about their implications. Government officials should pay attention to this assessment.

Earlier this year Bush administration political operatives made an unsuccessful attempt to muzzle climate scientist Jim Hansen, director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies. Dr. Hansen is now speaking freely about his analysis of the threat of dangerous global climate change. This in itself is a success story. We would like to see more federal climate scientists both able and willing to put forward an assessment of the climate change problem to a wider audience.

But overcoming overt censorship is just one necessary step. We still need to have policymakers and the public pay attention to the analysis, seek to understand it, and give it their most serious consideration. The President saw fit to meet over lunch with science fiction novelist Michael Crichton, author of State of Fear, a piece of pseudo-scientific drivel steeped in the views of the global warming denial machine. We wonder: Are any high government officials having lunch with Jim Hansen and other leading climate scientists?

Hansen's presentation begins with 12 pages of text, which annotates 52 pages of slides, including scientific charts. It should be generally accessible to most attentive non-technical readers. See also his book and movie review http://pubs.giss.nasa.gov/docs/2006/2006_Hansen.pdf , "The Threat to the Planet," in the New York Review of Books. His Columbia University Web site http://www.columbia.edu/~jeh1/ contains valuable documents, as does his NASA Web site http://www.giss.nasa.gov/staff/jhansen.html .
