With average global temperatures continuing to set records almost annually, more Americans are admitting the reality of climate change, but are they admitting how serious it is and how quickly we need to act? Denial comes in many forms, and each of them requires a unique approach. To understand how to break through the denial of people who admit that global climate change exists but who want to believe there are good reasons to do nothing about it, we need to call in a psychotherapist.
In this episode, we talk to Margaret Klein Salamon, clinical psychologist who writes at The Climate Psychologist and who founded and is Director of TheClimateMobilization. The topic is how do we get people to understand the urgency of mobilizing to fight climate change and how to organize and use the Pledge to Mobilize campaign to compel Congress to act.
This show will be rebroadcast on March 28 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio Network.

About Allen Klein:
Ever hear of a "Jollytologist®"? Well meet the world's one and only Allen Klein. Through his books and his presentations, Klein shows people worldwide how to deal with everything from traffic jams to tragedies.
Klein got into this unusual line of work after his wife died of a rare liver disease at the age of 34. He saw how humor helped her, and those around her, cope. He also saw how humor helped him get through that loss. He now teaches others how to find some in trying times. Those audiences include people in 48 states as well as Israel and Australia, and clients from IBM to the IRS.
Klein is an award-winning speaker and best-selling author. He is the recipient of a Toastmasters Communication and Leadership Award and a Certified Speaking Professional designation from the National Speakers Association. (Less than 800 of its 4,000 members have this honor.) Klein has authored, among other books, The Healing Power of Humor, Quotations to Cheer You Up, Up Words for Down Days, and The Courage to Laugh. The first book, The Healing Power of Humor, shows people how to use humor to deal with everyday trials and tribulations; the latter book, The Courage to Laugh, documents how people have used humor to triumph over tragedy.
Klein has a master's degree in humor from St. Mary's College in Minnesota (and that's no joke!) And he is well suited to his subject. Years before becoming a "Jollytologist®", Klein was nicknamed the "King of Whimsy" because he designed all the children shows at CBS television in New York City. Among those productions was one you probably remember the Captain Kangaroo show.

Born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Virginia, Richard Leigh was born into a home filled with domestic violence that ultimately claimed the life of both parents. Richard became an orphan at the tender age of four.
Going from family to family, he sought comfort in the form of music and songwriting. By the time he was ten, he was performing at church and school functions. By the time he was a teen, he was performing in music venues. Despite his humble beginnings, Richard went on to write songs for the greatest country music artists in history, including Ray Charles, George Jones, Alabama, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Dixie Chicks, and more. Award trophies include a Grammy, CMA Award, and Richard is one of only ten songwriters in history to ever receive the Song of the Century award. Arguably his most famous song, Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue, reached #1 on both the Pop and Country charts, earning Richard his first Grammy. He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1994. To date, Richard’s music has sold 50 million records and has made fourteen trips into the top ten, including eight #1 hits.
