If you haven’t read Bill McKibben’s article in the Rolling Stone, “Global Warming’s Terrifying New Math: Three simple numbers that add up to global catastrophe“, take a look. He claims it is the most important piece of literature he has written since his first boook, “The End of Nature”, which he wrote 30 years ago. This will be at the heart of the national Do the Math Tour this coming November.
Hundreds of new U.S. counties were declared disaster areas on Wednesday amidst the country’s worst drought in decades. We’re joined by famed environmental activist and 350.org founder Bill McKibben, whose new article for Rolling Stone magazine is called “Global Warming’s Terrifying New Math: Three simple numbers that add up to global catastrophe — and that make clear who the real enemy is.” Responding to climate skeptic Richard Muller’s reversal on global warming, McKibben says: “It’s scientifically not very interesting because most scientists figured it out 20 years ago, and all [Muller] has done is confirm their work. Politically, it’s interesting because we’re reaching the point where even industry-funded deniers can’t with a straight face say that [the earth] is not warming.” – Democracy Now
