“According to Proceedings from the National Academy of Sciences, the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide we observe today is the minimum level we’ll see for at least the next 1000 years. Carbon dioxide is incredibly recalcitrant in the atmosphere. We can’t just wave a magic wand, start doing permaculture and powering down and expect to reduce that number to 350 parts per million, as proposed by 350.org.” -Guy R. McPherson
LISTEN TO THE SHOW
This week’s Global Research News Hour features a speech given by scientist and ‘doomer’ author Guy Mcpherson.
While much of the public may have doubts about whether or not anthropogenic climate change is a reality, it is a FACT that over 97% of peer-reviewed scientific research published over the last two decades confirm the viewpoint that the planet is indeed warming due to human activities.
As noted in a previous interview, Dr. Mcpherson, Professor Emeritus of Natural Resources and the Environment at the University of Arizona, has spent countless hours pouring over the scientific literature, and connected numerous dots.
Dr. Mcpherson is in full agreement with the scientific concensus around anthropogenic (human-generated) climate change.
Further, he concludes that global warming has passed a “tipping point” and that habitat loss associated with the warming of the planet will condemn the human species to extinction within 20 years.
Unlike other prominent scientists and activists, Mcpherson concludes that there is really nothing the human species can do to prevent or mitigate this catastrophe.
Dr. McPherson has given many lectures to public audiences across Canada and the United States and has now done multiple media interviews.
His February 6 speech in Winnipeg laid out the evidence in detail. Winnipeg audience members had a chance to direct questions to the American speaker afterward. The talk was introduced by his host, Gerry Kopelow of the Dharma Centre of Winnipeg.
Guy McPherson is the author of Going Dark. His blog, Nature Bats Last, can be found atwww.guymcpherson.com.
