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, which can be read in its entirety here.
