Talking with National Climate Assessment Vice Chair Gary Yohe: Telling It Like It Is, Not Like It Will Be, On Climate Change


By dlindorff - Posted on 05 June 2014

By Dave Lindorff

 

Dr. Gary Yohe, Huffington Professor of Economics and Environmental Studies at Wesleyan University, and vice chair of the just-released third National Climate Estimate, talks about this latest report, which instead of looking out at a grim future of flooded coastlines, epic droughts and floods and soaring temperatures, looked at the evidence already confronting Americans in every state of the union.

In this broadcast of the "ThisCantBeHappening!" weekly radio program hosted by TCBH! member Dave Lindorff on the Progressive Radio Network, Yohe explains that perhaps just telling people about what's coming in future decades may not be the best way to galvanize the public into action to slow the progression of global warming. Instead, he suggests, showing people the hard evidence of the changes already underway may do more to convince the skeptical that global warming is real and that it is a serious threat to us all, and to our descendants.
