If your summers are getting warmer, and you have experienced flooding or wildfires then most likely you can attribute these changing conditions to global warming.

If you have experienced this near your home and you think that global warming is attributing to these shifts in our environment then you won’t want to miss this interview with Stan Cox the author of a new book entitled “The Green New Deal and Beyond-Ending the Climate Emergency While We Still Can” 

“Thanks to a human-induced green house warming, the Earth’s average temperature today is about 1.2 degrees Celsius higher than it was in the pre-fossil-fuel era. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported in 2018 that if warming is allowed to surpass 1.5 degrees Celsius the world will risk widespread ecological destruction and human suffering,” states Cox.

Since, 2018, climate groups in the U.S. have been pushing for a Green New Deal, a plan that calls for cutting net U.S.greenhouse emissions to zero through a just transition to an economy that runs on non-fossil energy. The still-evolving plan has given the climate movement a big shot in the arm, providing a sweeping national policy initiative that millions now regard as something worth rallying around.

In this podcast interview with Stan, we explore the reason and causes as well as the opportunities we have as a country and worldwide what can be done to reduce the emissions thus reduce the overall effects of global warming.  If you have any interest in participating and doing your part to reduce or eliminate what could be a catastrophic environmental issue then you will want to listen closely to what Stan says in this podcast interview.
