I've posted links to Dr. Guy McPherson several times recently, along with videos and articles from other climatologists, but I thought this one particularly well done.

Guy hails from northern Idaho, and taught at the University of Arizona for 21 years, writing books and articles, examining facts, data, and articles from seemingly everywhere. What makes him particularly relevant is not only his remarkable background in so many areas, but his speaking truth that other academicians would get fired or ostracized for and that go frightfully well beyond folks such as Bill McKibben or James Hansen.

He pulls no punches, has a great slide show, a wonderful sense of humor (especially for someone addressing the topic of abrupt climate change and near-term extinction), and is clearly the great teacher he was lauded and several times awarded for (before speaking too much truth).

There's a follow-up video that comes automatically for the interesting Q and A period afterwards (or so it is on my computer). Guy has his own website, Nature Bats Last, easily found, with much more information. Having been through six years of college (biology and education, and much more as needed for continued certification), I feel qualified to say this is one of the best teachers I've come across. For those who prefer to read than watch videos, as has been true for me in years past, check his website, though I do most highly recommend this video that speaks of events that already are affecting your life.

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)

I've looked for criticisms of Guy and found several, but they don't hold much water, imo. I've looked at many other sites such as RMI.org and Project Drawdown. Many fascinating, with pro-active projects I believe we should continue to engage in, but as Dr. McPherson notes, in Buddhist-like fashion, not becoming attached to the results of. When told by a doctor that your days are numbered (as was the case when you were born!), it tends to create a focus on things that truly matter--which are generally not "things."

Daniel, In another article of yours I referenced in a comment potholer54, a.k.a., Peter Hadfield. If you haven't seen any of his stuff, you really need to watch some. I think he is absolutely excellent in describing global warming and tearing apart deniers. Here is one 22 minute video that will show you what I mean. I hope you agree. I know a guy who is very smart but he says volcanoes are the main reason for CO2 being in the atmospere and humans only are responsible for 3% OF CO2. I did not have an effective counter but I do now, i.e., "carbon flux." The entire video is very good but if you want to see how he explains carbon flux to shut down deniers start the video at 16 mins. Note, maybe you already knew about the concept but I didn't.

We'll check it. Many thanks. I've got several other articles I'm meaning to get up on this and so called geoengineering.

The Silence of the Bugs is an overlooked but ominous look at what change is doing.

Just a few days ago I read another article on the same topic as yours. Like your article it referenced the cleaner than before windshield evidence. I thought about it and right away I realized it is true, at least for me. I remember driving the highway and my car getting splattered by, or my car splattering, bugs. It doesn't happen anymore.

Man this is bleak. There's got to be an engineering solution. How about Nuclear Winter? Set off a few carefully calibrated blasts in an uninhabited area and raise enough dust to cool things down. I think the middle of the Sahara might be the place to do it. Antarctica would free too much H2O.
