This isn't particularly informative or interesting. It boils down to, "CO2=bad" I don't see how it merits posting.

Well, that's depressing. Not news, though, if you've at all been paying attention.

This is a plan that can unify conservatives and liberals, environmentalists and business.

Well, not really. I mean, whether or not you think Hansen's policy idea would work, he's not going to get any traction on it with people who actively disagree with the science. (Or, just, you know, with science itself.)

I like the moon base idea. I've been making my kids watch The Right Stuff repeatedly to prepare them.

I gather solar-powered CO2 scrubbers are not going to work.

Obviously a shill for US oil interests. Tomorrow, Obama will announce we're invading Canada.

On a global scale I'm onside with this stuff. On a local scale I think the tar sands are a travesty. However:
Canada’s tar sands, deposits of sand saturated with bitumen, contain twice the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by global oil use in our entire history.
Pure hyperbole.

Anyway, it got me thinking of an old post: Planetary Maintenance Engineer. The link is broken, so here is the original piece.
