Young People’s Burden: Requirement of Negative CO2 Emissions — Earth System Dynamics

By James Hansen. Continued high fossil fuel emissions unarguably sentences young people to either a massive, possibly implausible cleanup or growing deleterious climate impacts or both, scenarios that should provide both incentive and obligation for governments to alter energy policies without further delay.

Crops and Climate — Citizen Scientist
