James Hansen’s Slides from Bjerknes Lecture at 2008 AGU Meeting Now Available

Dr. James Hansen of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies has made the slides from his December 2008 Bjerknes Lecture at the American Geophysical Union’s annual meeting in San Francisco available on line in PDF and Power Point formats. In his presentation he covered science, public policy and ethics. The slides are definitely worth taking a few minutes to peruse.

Below, I’ve provided a few examples to whet your appetite. I was, personally, particularly interested in the one describing what it would take to produce runaway, Venus-like conditions on earth as that is something that I’ve long wondered about but never seen addressed.

A few more of the slides:
