The ‘Clear and Present Danger’ of Climate Change

Interview by KCRW 21 Jan, 2014: Almost 100% of climate scientists now say global warming is caused by human behavior and that action now is a moral imperative for future generations. But public perception is moving the other way, with fewer Americans worried, despite recent extreme weather conditions here and around the world. Meanwhile, new oil and gas discoveries, along with new technologies, have created the prospect of energy independence for the US, and the Obama Administration has adopted a policy called “all of the above,” supporting fossil fuels as well as renewables. It’s difficult to predict specifically what’s next to come, but a draft report to the UN says government foot-dragging will lead to devastating surprises. We hear about new pressures on the Obama Administration and how politics are complicating the findings of science. Source http://www.kcrw.com/news/programs/tp/tp140121greenhouse_gas_emiss

    Hats off for scientists speaking out against politicians, oil money and religious people. Everybody knows we have to do something, EVERYBODY except those I just mentioned.

    I wish so much the public would listen and understand this but everyone’s families are right wing conservatives and refuse to believe it at all and wont take the time to listen about it. im to the point of just letting it all go and watching the world die cuz it is out of our hands.i believe in god and everlasting life and i know the devil is behind the oil money and i know that everything will be ok in the end.
