Notes: Credits:
In September of 2015, Barry visited with Dr. Guy R. McPherson (http://www.guymcpherson.net/), co-author with Carolyn Baker of Extinction Dialogs:How to Live with Death in Mind. McPherson is Professor Emeritus of Natural Resources, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona. This archive program is the first of a series on near-term extinction of the human species.

Dr. McPhersons words about the possible effects of climate change are hauntingly prescient, heard a year and a half year later.

As you listen, consider the following: is what McPherson predicted occurring? Has climate change affected your life? What have you done, or what are doing differently, as a consequence? What are your future plans regarding climate change?

The point from which average global temperature rise is measured dates back to 1750 (https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/global/201507), the beginning of the industrial revolution, and the time at which the ever increasing use of fossil fuels began.Since 1750, the planet has warmed by more than 1 degree centigrade. McPherson's book Extinction Dialogs:How to Live with Death in Mind, explains how this small global rise in temperature is leading to a large scale mass extinction on the planet.
