Demos against dumb, and more

Well done at The Coal Hole, just one of the actions on Fossil Fuel's Day.

Elsewhere, James Hansen calls for action on coal (Mr. Rogers and Darth Vader), while Stephen Schneider walks through some of the uncertainties (Modeling the future):
While we say it's likely (there's at least a 2 in 3 chance) that it won't go up above four and a half degrees, there's a 10-20 percent chance that we could have blown it already and we'll end up at the catastrophic end of the bell curve of uncertainty.
Meanwhile in the other/real world, China offers Nigeria $50bn credit -- a great boost for oil and gas.

Here's hoping Al Gore is right.

P.S. Yesterday, Joe Romm posted the first part of an enlightening run-through of whether 440pp or less is politically possible.
