"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 War is obsolete.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)

Climate Progress has a link to Hansen's cogent testimony to the Iowa legislature regarding the risks of new coal plants. The figures constituting the second half of that document are especially good.

There's an interesting biography of James Hansen recently posted by NASA.

Thanks for Hansen pointer.
Although I didn't see a lot new, it's a really nice, up-to-date package that warps a lot together.
