Sorry for another Bummer

Fareed Zakaria interviews Bill McKibben on GPS (Global Public Square) - McKibben warned us 30 years ago when The End of Nature was published. His new book is  Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to play itself out. He says that climate change is coming on faster and harder than we thought it could back then and how human society has done pretty much nothing about it and that's largely due to the efforts of the fossil fuel industry and those who profit from it. He said the bright point is how well the engineers have done in making the solutions available, not that we can stop it now, but maybe could slow it down, reduce the impact, and save civilization. Good luck to us all. Now back to the issues of actual interest.
