L.A. Times

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Dr. James Hansen is Paul Revere to the foreboding tyranny of climate chaos—a modern-day hero who has braved criticism and censure and put his career and fortune at stake to issue the call to arms against the apocalyptic forces of ignorance and greed.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Al Gore

When the history of the climate crisis is written, Hansen will be seen as the scientist with the most powerful and consistent voice calling for intelligent action to preserve our planet's environment.

Al Gore, Time Magazine

Bill McKibben

Jim Hansen is the planet's great hero. He offered us the warning we needed twenty years ago, and has worked with enormous courage ever since to try and make sure we heeded it. We'll know before long if that effort bears fruit—if it does, literally no one deserves more credit than Dr. Hansen.

Bill McKibben, coordinator 350.org
and author of The End of Nature
