Game Over!? Não deixaremos!

Um artigo no New York Times do prestigiado cientista e ex-director do Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) da NASA, James Hansen.

«The tar sands contain enough carbon — 240 gigatons — to add 120 p.p.m. Tar shale, a close cousin of tar sands found mainly in the United States, contains at least an additional 300 gigatons of carbon. If we turn to these dirtiest of fuels, instead of finding ways to phase out our addiction to fossil fuels, there is no hope of keeping carbon concentrations below 500 p.p.m. — a level that would, as earth’s history shows, leave our children a climate system that is out of their control.»
