ABSTRACT
In this article climate scientist Jim Hansen warns Barack Obama, who will be inaugurated as U.S. president, that people have only four years left to act on climate change. It has been stated that only drastic, immediate change can save the day and those changes proposed by Hansen is a winner of the World Wildlife Fund's top conservation award and are certainly far-reaching. He thinks that plan to include carbon trading schemes in talks about future climate agreements was a desperate error.
