The Irreversible Damage Coming From Sea Level Rise, Ice Melt, and Superstorms

Tuesday, March 22, 2016

James Hansen, one of the early scientists who warned of the dangers of climate change, has prepared another paper about to be published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Journal.

The subject this time is the impact of the accelerating rate of ice melt on the planet and what it could and will mean to the world's climate -- and all of us living there. The damage coming is major and the changes it will bring with it may never be reversible.

Hansen has prepared a video shown below summarizing the key points of that paper. Please watch and pass it on.
