And then there is the historic movement against the Keystone XL pipeline, which this fall has decisively yanked the climate movement out of the lobbyists’ offices and into the streets (and jail cells). Anti-Keystone campaigners have noted that anyone concerned about the corporate takeover of democracy need look no further than the corrupt process that led the State Department to conclude that a pipeline carrying dirty tar sands oil across some of the most sensitive land in the country would have “limited adverse environmental impacts.” As 350.org’s Phil Aroneanu put it, “If Wall Street is occupying President Obama’s State Department and the halls of Congress, it’s time for the people to Occupy Wall Street.”
Although the Haaretz article cited in footnote 21 refers to James Hansen as the author of the book Climate Code Red, that book was written by David Spratt (full title CLIMATE CODE RED: THE CASE FOR EMERGENCY ACTION, published by SCRIBE PUBLICATIONS, Melbourne, Australia in 2008). In his 2010 book "Eaarth--Making Life On a Tough New Planet" (spelled with two "a"s deliberately) McKibben describes (pp 206ff) the origins of the 350 movement and refers to "James Hansen's NASA report setting 350 parts per million carbon dioxide as the maximum atmospheric concentration compatible with maintaining the planet..." but does not cite Climate Code Red.Umbrete1066 (talk) 05:48, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

List of messengers.
- The anon asserts that there is support, because the list of 4 or 5 has been there for about a year; however, I believe there was a consensus that there should be no specific messengers listed unless an external reliable source considered it notable. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 07:00, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
"Later, the continued melting of the polar cap pushed him into starting 350.org, based on Hansen's 2007 book Climate Code Red."
I am pretty sure "Storms of My Grandchildren" is James Hansen's only book.
On Amazon, there is a book entitled: "Climate Code Red: The Case for Emergency Action" by David Spratt and Philip Sutton.
The linked interview (http://www.haaretz.com/350-and-counting-1.8057) does attribute the book to Hansen, but I think it is incorrect.
