Is this accurate or not, and if it is: why isn't it a bigger deal?

James Hansen says that the data is now agreed by scientists all over the world: without quick response we face near extinction as a species. I want to examine his statements against good researches to bring about awareness that our species is on the verge of self-extinction.

I believe without swift action, we are. and that if people do not start talking about this issue more, my children will not have a future for long. by 2100 many areas now inhabited by great cities along coasts should be underwater, and droughts and more active weather patterns will cause our once great resources to diminish almost overnight in geological time.

This video is one of the resources for that data, what do you in science say about this?

From the Forum Guidelines:

  1. Bare links with no supporting discussion should be avoided. Make the argument in your own words and use links as supporting references.

supporting discussion:
The supporting discussion is there, it is just not long and wordy.

Is this accurate or not, and if it is, why is it not more discussed?

Re: supporting discussion:
In the context of a posting board, formality calls for ones point of view to be written out and not simply assumed. Keep in mind that we frame these discussions for potential readers...not simply informally amongst ourselves.
