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.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
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
