Conservation Hawks Supports Climate Scientist

NASA’s Hansen assesses climate crisis in New York Times; Conservation Hawks applauds clear language and strong message.

BIGFORK, Mont. – Conservation Hawks, a group of hunters and anglers working to defend America’s sporting heritage, has released the following statement in response to a recent New York Times op/ed by NASA scientist James Hansen: Climate scientists usually speak in terms of “probability” or “confidence.” While they may express very high confidence (90 percent or greater) that the earth is warming because of increased CO2 levels, they rarely make definitive statements like “We are forcing temperatures higher with our fossil fuel emissions.”
