The Washington Post | The world’s most famous climate scientist just outlined an alarming scenario for our planet’s future

Guarini Center affiliate and NYU School of Law Visiting Professor Michael Oppenheimer is quoted in a recent Washington Post column that profiles a new high-profile scientific study. The study in question, led by James Hansen of Columbia’s Earth Institute, claims that prominent projections of sea-level rise in the coming decades may fail to account for climatic feedback effects that could cause the progression of sea-level rise to be exponential, rather than linear.

Washington Post columnist Chris Mooney solicited the impressions of Dr. Oppenheimer, among other climate experts, for his column.
