Former NASA Scientist James Hansen urges young people to threaten fossil fuel CEOs with criminal prosecution for supporting skeptics
Hansen: I do not advise young people to get arrested, even though I have been arrested in protests against activities such as mountaintop removal and tar sands development. My aim, as an older person willing to accept the consequences, is to draw attention to an unjust situation or policy. Our government has shown that it is ready to heavily punish illegal acts, even if those acts are justified on moral grounds, as shown by the Tim DeChristopher case.

Former NASA scientist James Hansen: ‘Climate change is altering people’s lives, right now, from the United States to Africa to the Arctic. It is as clear and present a danger as we’ve ever seen’ — Hansen: ‘What we owe our kids on climate; – ‘This warming is driving an increase in extreme weather, from heat waves and droughts to wildfires and stronger storms (though mistakenly expecting science to instantly document links to specific events misses the forest for the trees).’

IHS CERA Study: Keystone XL will have ”no material impact’ on greenhouse gas emissions – Finds: Keystone XL will have “no material impact” on greenhouse gas emissions. Venezuela will be “the number one beneficiary of a negative decision” on Keystone XL. – Rail is a viable option for transporting Canadian oil sands: “Even if new pipelines lag oil sands growth, rail will fill the gap, as it is doing today.” – “Even if the Keystone XL pipeline does not move forward, we do not expect a material change to oil sands production growth.”
