Climate Change Lobbyists Outnumbered

Marc Gunther published another very interesting article at the Guardian titled “In Washington, a handful of corporations lobby against climate change”. The article documents that most lobbyists in the United States are opposing meaningful policies to accelerate the switch away from fossil fuels. Lobbyists are not without influence on American politics. Much of that influenceContinue reading “Climate Change Lobbyists Outnumbered”

North Korea Behind Global Warming

Just revealed in the Guardian: The discovery that North Korea has been secretly pumping climate-altering chemicals into the atmosphere in an attempt to destroy agricultural production across the US has sparked an international crisis. This is not true. I know better. Global warming, or global meltdown as it should be called more realistically, is causedContinue reading “North Korea Behind Global Warming”

Therefore I was interested in reading anContinue reading “Book On Writing Stories About Global Warming”

Actually, it is an extraterrestrial threat.Continue reading “Independence Day Moment”

Global Warming: Greatest Failure of Risk Management

John Abraham and Dana Nutticelli write at the Guardian that global warming is the greatest failure of human risk management, though they call it “climate change” (a mistake, since “climate change” sounds less threatening than “global warming”). They don’t ask why humans are so bad at dealing with this particular risk. I have asked exactly that question,Continue reading “Global Warming: Greatest Failure of Risk Management”

List of Global Warming Fiction Books

I have recently started a list on Goodreads titled “Climate Change Fiction”. It has already 19 books, including my own two contributions. However, I made a mistake when starting that list. It should have been “Global Warming Fiction”. I didn’t think too much about that choice. But it is wrong. As this recent blog postContinue reading “List of Global Warming Fiction Books”
