Dahr Jamail got his genuinely well researched and written book out the door in January this year. Here's what I just copied from an article about it: "A superb journalist, in the most honorable tradition of that craft." Howard Zinn

After nearly a decade overseas as a war reporter, the acclaimed journalist Dahr Jamail returned to America to renew his passion for mountaineering, only to find that the slopes he had once climbed have been irrevocably changed by climate disruption. In response, Jamail embarks on a journey to the geographical front lines of this crisisfrom Alaska to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, via the Amazon rainforestin order to discover the consequences to nature and to humans of the loss of ice.

This interview with Derrick Jensen, a long-time environmentalist in his own right, does a 50 minute interview here with Dahr. I had to turn it off a bit past the middle, before resting and going back to it. I've heard most before, but Dahr is a phenomenal speaker and gives frightfully clear examples. My suggestion is watch as much as you can handle (assuming you even want to), and skip to about 40 minutes in, where Jamail offers some superb wisdom from Native Americans. If you haven't gone through the stages of grief for the earth and its creatures, be forewarned, this may send you on the way. Only by getting to acceptance have I been able to think at least moderately clearly on how to live in what I can only call the End-of-Scene. Yes, we should have gotten along with the first human inhabitants of North and South America from the start, but better late than never for listening.
