"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting our high technology from WEAPONRY to LIVINGRY."
- Buckminster Fuller (h/t Suzy Waldman)

Hansen Expects Meters of Sea Level Rise Soon

James Hansen begins a popular article released today thus:
"I find it almost inconceivable that "business as usual" climate change will not result in a rise in sea level measured in metres within a century. Am I the only scientist who thinks so?"
Good question. Is he?

Thanks to Atmoz for noticing this.

Update: Some discussion on this on the GlobalChange list.
