Energy + Climate = Disaster

(cut and paste the following text, spread it around…)

Stefan Rahmstorf says our emissions must go down 100% in 20 years to stay under 2 C.

James Hansen says 2 C = DISASTER

Kevin Anderson says we have a 5% chance of success for staying below 2 C.

We have a 95% chance of failing to stay below the disaster zone.
