Default Author Interview: The next 100,000 years of life on earth

So I heard this interview a week or so ago, and found it interesting and of general interest to anyone interested in the whole climate issue. I think it puts things in perspective.

The author is a big man made climate change advocate, but he goes through some of the possibilities, as well as the radically different climate the earth has already gone through, like the forests of Antarctica when there was no ice there like there is today.



People will take away different things, but this did not alarm me in the slightest. It was a great showcase that the earths climate has been changing for billions of years. The idea of some sort of steady state, static and Utopian climate state is a myth.

More importantly, there is something the current crop of hominids have these days that our ancestors tens of thousands of years ago never did in the face of radical shifts in climate.

Civilization. The resilience of the species has increased over and above the range of what damage climate change can wreak compared to times past.
