Climate Scientists are Panicking - 1 Degree Makes a Big Difference

Thom plus logo Climate change is a real emergency, not a fake one like Trump's wall. The planet has already warmed one degree, and two degrees could be a civilization-ending event. It's killing people all over the world and is getting far worse far faster than we'd thought possible.

And fossil fuel billionaires and their companies are accumulating money faster than ever... and they're spending some of that money to lie to us about how serious this crisis is. It's time to deal with climate change denial like the moral crime it is, strip the fossil fuel industry of its subsidies, and immediately tax carbon while rolling out green new deal.

I suggest you look at the new book, The Uninhabital Earth, by David Wallace-Wells for some memorable phrases to characterize what is coming. There is also a recent interview on Chris Hayes Podcast, "Why is this happening?"

Barack Obama just plopped down $14.8 million for an estate on Martha's Vineyard. It is beachfront property. Why would he or anyone do that if rising sea levels from climate change is going to wipe it out in 10-20 years? I am waiting for a coherent answer.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
