James Hansen, director of the NASA Global Institute for Space Studies, wrote his 1st book entitled 'Storms of my grandchildren'. In the book, after decades of studies and research, he takes a definite stand, not just merely as a scientist in climate change, but also as 'witness' who foresees the imminent climate crisis is its own way. He makes it explicit that if we keep burning fossil fuels, our planet will come to its extinction.....
