Barack Obama has only four years to save the world. That is the stark assessment of Nasa scientist and leading climate expert Jim Hansen who last week warned only urgent action by the new president could halt the devastating climate change that now threatens Earth. Crucially, that action will have to be taken within Obama's first administration, he added.With a sympathetic ear in the White House Hansen must figure he's got a limited window of opportunity to ram through legislation that will bring us a living standard roughly equivalent to the hunter-gatherers of 10,000 years ago.

inauguration coronation imminent, he needs to step it up a notch.
