  1. pmc A common-sense climate index: is climate changing noticeably?
    J Hansen
    National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Institute for Space Studies, 2880 Broadway, New York, NY 10025, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 95:4113-20. 1998
    ..But we show that the growth rate of greenhouse gas climate forcing has declined in recent years, and thus there is an opportunity to keep climate change in the 21st century less than "business-as-usual" scenarios...
  2. pmc Climate forcings in the industrial era
    J E Hansen
    National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Institute for Space Studies, New York, NY 10025, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 95:12753-8. 1998
    ..The summary implication is a paradigm change for long-term climate projections: uncertainties in climate forcings have supplanted global climate sensitivity as the predominant issue...
  3. pmc Global temperature change
    James Hansen
    National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Columbia University Earth Institute, and Sigma Space Partners, Inc, 2880 Broadway, New York, NY 10025, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 103:14288-93. 2006
    ..We conclude that global warming of more than approximately 1 degrees C, relative to 2000, will constitute "dangerous" climate change as judged from likely effects on sea level and extermination of species...

    NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and Columbia University Earth Institute, New York, NY 10025, USA
    Philos Trans A Math Phys Eng Sci 365:1925-54. 2007
    ..Some forcings are especially effective at high latitudes, so concerted efforts to reduce their emissions could preserve Arctic ice, while also having major benefits for human health, agricultural productivity and the global environment...
