Description
Hansen first testified about global warming before the US Congress in 1988, but by 2001, nothing had been done about it. After the 2004 election promised more stone-walling by corporatist politicians, he decided to make another foray into politics. He made his speech at the December 2005 meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco. Bowen, who has himself written a book on climate change, narrates the approximately six months during which the issue shifted from science to politics.
