The Wicked Problem Of Climate Change With Andrew Revkin | Why Is This Happening? – Ep 16 | MSNBC


Why is it so hard to focus attention on the climate crisis? We know the damage we’re doing to the climate and we know why we’re doing it. We even know the obstacles to the solution (fossil fuel companies, denialist political parties) and yet it’s still a challenge to keep the issue front and center. After spending 30 years covering the climate crisis, Andrew Revkin knows what it’s like to be sounding the alarms that seem to fall on deaf ears. In this episode, Revkin talks about the huge role social science plays when it comes to talking about climate, explores what it would take to get the world to pay attention, and explains why he says, in his expert opinion, we’re already “in the s**t”.

    We are shaping the climate for the next 100k years? That alone disqualifies this person as knowing climate science.

  3. why there are a lot of dislikes on this

    • Fossil fuel interests try to influence social media by spreading disinformation – like the tobacco industry did in the 60’s & 70’s.

    In Australia I read (at age 10) Rachel Carson’s “Slient Spring” and a long time before that Svante Arrhenius predicted in 1896 that fossil fuel combustion may eventually result in enhanced global warming.- so the problem(s) have been understood for a long time before 1988 . . but a great interview anyway!

    200.000 new polluters to this planet. Nobody will stop this and oil is used
    more and more. So take your health insurance cards, possessions, money, credit
    cards, language skills, diplomas and fancy titles. In 10 till 12 years you can
    burn it with the rest of this planet

    Further to mention: rising water levels, more CO2 makes quality of food
    production less, climate refugees, war, extreme weather events, extinction of
    plants and animals (humans), oceans will change in chemical way, burning of our woods, drought, diseases,
    plagues, earth quakes, pressure in Earth’s crust, maybe rotation of planet,
    human conflicts about food and water and so on ………….
