Climate Change = Mass Extinction.
We’re supposed to stop emissions by 60% now if we’re going to save ourselves. Are governments primed to respond to the challenge? Is there any chance of them acting quick enough, I want to talk to John Sauven. How much can we hope people go over governments and get on with the job?
This is encouraging: Trump has withdrawn support for the Climate Advisory Panel, a committee who gather data on climate change which is translated to local level so it can be of practical use to people which is very important. However, as of January 1st 2018, the group reorganised with support from the Earth Institute, Columbia University and New York state. Richard Moss, former chairman of the Federal Advisory Committee for National Climate Assessment says, “There’s been an upwelling of support for the committee, because states and cities and businesses want access to information that helps them prepare. Climate research needs to be connected to society if knowledge is going to be useful.’
