Why does Joe Romm surrender eternity's future, and Jim Hansen does not?

Romm:  The only sane response is to reduce carbon pollution sharply. To avert the worst of dust-bowlification, we need global carbon pollution to peak early next decade, drop 50 percent below current levels by 2050, and stop entirely by century's end. Every year we delay adds $500 billion to the cost of action.

Hansen:  6% reduction in emissions starting 2012.

Huh?  No Romm, if you want to surrender your kids, cuz you lack the vision and balls to stand up to working the miracle, ok.  But not with my next 200 billion kids you don't.

Are you afraid if you lead us to fix this you won't have anything to blog about?
