James Hansen Director, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies

He is best known for his research in climatology, his 1988 Congressional testimony on climate change that helped raise broad awareness of global warming, and his advocacy of action to avoid dangerous climate change. In recent years he has become a climate activist to mitigate the effects of climate change, on a few occasions leading to his arrest. In 2000 Hansen advanced an alternative view of global warming, arguing that rise in average global temperatures had been driven mainly by greenhouse gases.
