ABSTRACT
This article examines the global threat of climate change and what can possibly be done about it. It reviews the history of climate research, from the work of Svante Arrhenius to James Hansen. The release of millions of tons of carbon dioxide has altered the climate in a significant way. Humans flourished during a relatively brief period of stable, hospitable weather. Climate change threatens to disrupt this delicate balance. The author warns there may be only ten years in which to stabilize emissions.
