Dr. James Hansen is an internationally-recognized climate scientist, one of the world’s preeminent experts on global warming. In the video below, Dr. Hansen calls for Americans to take part in the Capitol Climate Action on March 2nd at the Capitol Power Plant in Washington DC. This plant is providing dirty energy to Congress, which is why it’s the target of what’s expected to be the largest display of civil disobedience against global warming in US history.
Dr. Hansen warns that unless we stop burning coal, the country’s largest source of global warming pollution, young people will inherit a dramatically different world than the one we know and love today.
