Jim Hansen on TED: If you knew what I know
March 16, 2012 § Leave a comment
Jim Hansen is best known for his research in the field of climatology, his testimony on climate change to congressional committees in 1988 that helped raise broad awareness of global warming, and his advocacy of action to avoid dangerous climate change. In recent years, Hansen has become an activist for action to mitigate the effects of climate change, which on a few occasions has led to his arrest.
So this man is one of the world’s leading authorities on the effects of climate change. If you come across a climate change denier challenge them to watch this TED video and then try to construct a convincing arguement to why we should not be concerned about climate change.
The effects of climate change are serious and as Jim Hansen points out in this video, time is running out. We need innovative solutions if we are going to begin to tackle climate change with the urgency that is required. We would like to thank Jim Hasen for this expert TED talk and for inspiring us to continue developing the bloomtrigger project as a simple, affordable and creative way to tackle global deforestation and climate change.
