James E. Hansen: NASA Scientist, Activist, Government Advisor

James E. Hansen is one of the world’s top climate scientists. He has been head of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Earth Sciences Division since 1981. He is also an adjunct professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Columbia University. His 1988 testimony on climate change to US congressional committees was instrumental in helping raise broad awareness of global warming. His scientific statements on the issue were censored under the Bush administration and in recent years he has become increasingly outspoken about the lack of progress at a political level and the urgent need for action.

Hansen has been arrested several times for his environmental action and his book ‘Storms of My Grandchildren’ is one of the defining popular texts on the issue of climate change.

The festival will also be addressed by New Zealander, Jim Salinger, a lead author for the IPCC and former NIWA emloyee.

The MCSA Exam is the most grueling of Microsoft’s datacenter-focused titles, and shouldn’t be undertaken by those with less than several years of solid administration experience. If you don’t understand how all the network pieces fit together, you’re not ready yet to tackle this series of exams.MCITP MCSE
