Climate change denial has nearly run its course. With business magazines full of ideas for capitalizing on what hard-headed investors know is coming, it is hard for a rational person to believe the Koch Brothers and other fossil fuel advocates who pay to discredit scientists who long ago proved climate change is a fact. If that isn't enough, record droughts, storms and the opening of the Northwest Passage should make the case to anyone not hopelessly deluded by the propaganda.
Now that we are ready to face the truth, it is time to look at what could happen if we do not act fast. Most of the climate change activists have been reluctant to admit the terrifying worst-case possibilities for fear of inducing hoplessness and paralysis, but some feel we have to face the awful truth to summon the will to make the tremendous changes necessary for the survival of human civilization.
One such fearless researcher is Guy McPherson, our guest on Taking Back America in this episode. He is routinely demonized by people who fail to understand his arguments and the motivation behind them, adding to the steady drumbeat of voices lulling even advocates for addressing climate change into a dangerous complacency.
