Just in case you were worried James Hansen has gone soft…

The head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies is hardly backing off his strong feelings about climate change, as this excerpt from an interview by our own SciGuy shows:

“But this is not something you can compromise on.
This is analogous to the situation Abraham Lincoln faced with slavery, or Winston Churchill with Nazism. You can’t compromise and say we’ll reduce the number of slaves by 50 percent or something.”

I’m not sure if this is on the Q&A agenda but Hansen writes about his recent prostate surgery on his Web site and a recent editorial on the will to keep fighting.
