September 29, 2020: Anxiety and the Flight to Safe Living
Margaret Klein Salamon is a clinical psychologist turned climate warrior. Five years ago Margaret claimed a climate emergency and called for mass mobilization. Now cities and countries all over the world have called for a climate emergency. She’s written a book about how to overcome eco-anxiety. While all things Corona overwhelm our lives and the news, greenhouse gas emissions have not stopped, and climate change continues to drive more vicious events, including fire, floods, extreme storms, drought, and soon extreme heat in the N. Hemisphere. Forget what will happen by the year 2100 — new science shows large ocean systems will begin to die off during this decade, with land ecology collapsing a decade or two later. Dr. Alex Pigot joins from London to explain this major paper published in the journal Nature.
