A Better World continues its ongoing series on the Environment & the subjects of Global Warming & what has amounted to Climate Catastrophe. Mitchell's guest today, internationally-renowned journalist and author of many books, most recently, The End of Ice, Dahr Jamail, terms it "Climate Disruption". Today we'll take another look at the global, eco-systemic situation from the point of view of melting glaciers and ice. Dahr's far-reaching, well-researched work reveals a picture of the planet that we are all better off knowing about than not.
In late 2003, weary of the overall failure of the US media to accurately report on the realities of the war in Iraq for the Iraqi people, Dahr Jamail went to the Middle East to report on the war himself, where he has spent more than one year in Iraq as one of only a few independent US journalists in the country. Dahr has also reported from Syria, Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan. He has also reported extensively on veterans’ resistance against US foreign policy, and is now focussing on anthropogenic climate and the environment.
Dahr’s stories have been published with Truthout, Inter Press Service, Tom Dispatch, The Sunday Herald in Scotland, The Guardian, Foreign Policy in Focus, Le Monde, Le Monde Diplomatique, The Huffington Post, The Nation, The Independent, and Al Jazeera, among others. Dahr is currently and has been a feature writer for Truthout.org for five years, and his climate feature page there is titled ‘Climate Disruption Dispatches‘.
Join Mitchell and Dahr today in this exploration of 'what's happening on the ground and in the mountains' of our beautiful planet that is heating up more rapidly than anyone might have predicted. May it help to clear up what choices we can make to be part of the solution.
