16May2013: James Hansen at LSE - spread the word

James Hansen in London this Thursday - spread the word!

Hi gang,

So James Hansen, possibly the world's most famous and well-respected
climate scientist, is going to speaking at LSE this Thursday.

Dr Hansen is a total legend. His was one of the first and strongest voices
to warn the world about the dangers of global warming back in the 1980s,
and his scientific predictions about the rate of climate change have
proved highly accurate. In recent years, he has led the way in calling for
scientists to speak up and challenge governments about the problem, and he
has himself been arrested several times on clim ate change demonstrations.

The talk this Thursday will be all about how do we turn scientific
evidence into action, and pressure governments to take the required steps
on climate change. It's going to be a little bit unmissable I reckon.

Public lecture: Itinerant Farming to White House Arrests: a scientist’s
view of the climate crisis

The unfolding human-made climate crisis seems almost surrealistic from a
scientific perspective. As knowledge of a climate emergency improves,
policies change in ways that exacerbate rather than mitigate the
situation. The tragedy is that actions needed to stabilise climate, rather
than being painful to society, would have multip le benefits, including
stronger economies, more good jobs, and more equitable opportunities for
individuals.

If our governments continue to fail to advance effective policy, thus
causing continued extraction of every fossil fuel that can be found,
today's children, future generations, and nature will bear the
consequences through no fault of their own.

A variety of options for making governments do their job will be discussed.

Date and location: Thursday 16 May, 6.30-8pm; Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New
Academic Building, LSE, London WC2A 2AE

Speaker: Dr James Hansen, former director of the NASA Goddard Institute
for Space Studies (GISS), Adjunct Professor of Earth Sciences at Columbia
University’s Earth Institute, and designated by Time Magazine, in 2006, as
one of the world’s 100 most influential people

Chair: Professor Sam Fankhauser
