Climate change protest this Thursday

There's a climate change protest in Coventry this Thursday lunchtime, led by NASA scientist James Hansen, and organised by Christian Aid. It is partly protesting against the proposed new coal-fired power station at Kingsnorth. Hansen's participation is a notable example of the new stridency and political activism among climate change scientists:

Prof Kevin Anderson, the research director at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research in Manchester, said: "Scientists have lost patience with carefully constructed messages being lost in the political noise. We are now prepared to stand up and say enough is enough."
