Australian author Clive Hamilton on geoengineering & his new book Earthmasters: Playing God with the Climate. Plots by big oil, Bill Gates & nuke scientists. Shocking new science shows Arctic could melt at current carbon levels. Plus world-wide growth of bike sharing with Janet Larsen of Earth-Policy.
Welcome traveller. Can you handle the truth?
I didn’t think so. Me neither.
But it will happen anyway. Science is beginning to prove we have already changed the planet’s climate in dangerous ways.
A small group of climate scientists, backed by a billionaire and big oil, are considering taking over control of the climate, to stave off disaster. Then we’ll find proof our current 400 parts per million will melt so much Arctic and Antarctic ice, warming up to 8 degrees C, flooding the world’s largest cities.
We’ll wrap that up with one of the few positive alternatives growing in this disturbed scene: a wave of bike sharing around the world. Includes Europe, U.S., Mexico, South America, China.
