The James Hansen, Michael Mann global warming rate disagreement

These links and references have been extracted, in the main, from the notes occuring near the end of the book "Intervention Earth: earth saving ideas from the worlds climate engineers" by Gwynne Dyer. The primary 2023 article by J. Hansen et al, "Global warming in the pipeline", is heavily scientific as might be expected. Many of the other links and references are less technical and might be consulted first.

Reflection:

We will know soon enough whether Hansen's new estimates are on the right track, indeed as early as 2030. Meanwhile, the world watches the (annual average) upward path of the Keeling Curve, and (generally) increasing temperatures, along with increasing storms, floods, forest fires, biodiversity loss, and sea level rise with growing concern.
