Climate Change: What do we know? What can we do?

I am happy to announce the release of my new educational CD, “Climate Change:  What do we know?  What can we do?”  The MP3 version is available to listen to or download below.  Contact me to purchase the CD version ($10).  It will be available through online distributors soon.   

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has just released the first part of its fifth report on the state of the earth’s climate.  The results are alarming.  They point to present and future impacts on the climate system of the greenhouse gas emissions being released by human activity.

At the same time, climate change skeptics are “cherry-picking” data in the report to bolster their claims that the earth is not warming, or that the warming is not due to the release of greenhouse gases, or that the warming will have good effects, or that there is nothing we can (or should) do about it.  Confusing for people who don’t understand the issues, to say the least.

What are scientists telling us about climate change?  If there really is a scientific consensus that the earth is warming, why is there so much controversy about the issue?  And even if  climate change is real, what impact could we possibly have on a problem that big?  What could we possibly do that would help to stabilize earth’s climate and prevent catastrophic climate change?  These are the questions that this CD seeks to answer.

As the earth continues to warm and extreme weather becomes more common, it’s important that as many of us as possible understand the basic facts about climate change.  The challenges before us are great, but the situation is not hopeless.  As I say in the final track of this CD:

Whoever you are, you can become an agent of transformation at this time when the earth needs us most.  Wherever you are, you can join together with people in your community and with millions of people on every continent who are calling for climate justice and are working to create the new world that is possible.  Whatever your situation, you can do your small part in the struggle to reign in fossil fuel emissions, avoid catastrophic climate change, and build up the foundations for a livable future.  In this way, we help create a sustainable future for everyone and everything that we hold dear.
