Is the Worst Climate Change Tipping Point Just 5 Years Away?

Thom plus logo The UK's national weather service, the Met Office, has set off a fire alarm. The big fear the IPCC defined was that if global warming went above 1.5 degrees celsius before the year 2100, it could trigger a bunch of irreversible tipping points, including widespread melting of frozen methane, that could trigger a climate spiral that would kill off large parts of the life on earth, leading to the death of billions of humans and the end of what we call civilization.

Now the UK's Met Office says this may happen within the next five years. It's time for the Green New Deal to be put into law today, both here in the US and its equivalent in other countries around the world.

Americans Must Focus on 2024 & The Rise of Authoritarianism

Thom plus logo America needs to talk about Trump-proofing democracy for 2024 and beyond.

The billionaires with strong fascistic tendencies are carefully watching Trump and his administration to see what works and what doesn't as he pushes to tear apart our institutions of governance and divide America as a political strategy.
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
