Hansen on fossil fuels
On tar sands, oil shale, the like, and global warming:
“If we use unconventional fossil fuels then there’s no hope.”
On the Bush-McCain plan for offshore oil drilling:
“It’s just a crazy thing to do.”
— Dr. James Hansen, speaking at a National Press Club luncheon, which honored him and commemorated the 20th anniversary of the landmark 1988 Senate hearing on global warming.
