Writing the Letter- Feedback from James Hansen
Back a few weeks ago when we were writing the draft petition, we sent it to James Hansen, NASA scientist who has emerged as the possibly most vocal scientist in the world working to address the climate change situation.
We ended up using the final draft of the petition that he sent back, but leaving out one crucial paragraph, below:
“We urge you to consider the carbon tax proposal put forth by Dr. James Hansen, a reasonable and effective strategy for limiting climate change gases and providing funds for stimulating the development of green energy.”
While we think this is an idea worth considering, we thought it would be best and most inclusive of the message to leave the door open to all options rather than recommending specific political and economic actions.
We are very interested in YOUR thoughts on how to get from here to 350.
Let us know!
