"UN on wrong track with plans to limit global warming to 2C, says top scientist [James Hansen]" -- The Guardian

"Might makes right" has worked for politicians for thousands of years, but not this time. Hansen is right in noting " [ . . .] we are screwing the next generation."  I'll be reading at the March & Rally for Climate Justice on Dec. 12 at Balboa Park in San Diego with poets Sandra Alcosser, Julia Julima, and others.  If you would like to join over 700,000 people who marched the weekend of Nov. 28 and 29, click here for the nearest action to you.  Update Dec. 7, 2015:  The Guardian reported today "US, China, Canada and EU among big carbon emitters at UN summit supporting 1.5C target to protect most vulnerable countries such as small island states."  However, talk is easy.  As Bruce Lee said, “Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.”
