    NEW DATE Dr. James Hansen

    Originally scheduled for October 29, the event has been rescheduled because of temporary health issues of Dr. Hansen. Tickets already purchased are to be used for the December 7th event. No replacement tickets are necessary. If refunds are needed, please call 888-695-0888.

    The Progressive Forum Houston presents Dr. James Hansen,   Premier Climatologist. Presentation: Threat To The Planet, Implications for Intergenerational Justice. Thursday October 29 at 7:30, in the Wortham Center, Cullen Theater.

    James Hansen was the first to create broad awareness of global warming in his Congressional testimonies in the 1980s. His recent research has made the public aware that the climate is even more sensitive than previously thought, that the safe level of atmospheric C02 is 350 ppm (parts per million). Currently the steadily rising CO2 concentration is higher than the safe level at 389 ppm according to April observations in Hawaii by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

    Dr. Hansen is head of a major U.S. governmental agency responsible for atmosphere studies. Government regulators preclude us from identifying the agency, describing his Forum appearance as "personal/outside activity." Dr. Hansen is making a rare and timely public appearance just prior to the Copenhagen Climate Conference in December whose purpose is to forge an international climate treaty.

    This is Dr. Hansen’s second appearance at The Progressive Forum.
