Climate Disruption Caused by Industrial Revolution
Truthout Interview with Dahr Jamail on Climate Disruption
For those who like to say that the “debate” over human-caused climate change is not settled, their protestations are based on other motivations than arguing the finer points of scientific data. In other words, climate change deniers want politicians and voters to think that factories, vehicles, aircraft, cattle farming practices, and other carbon emitting activities that humans have a hand in do not contribute to climate change. To admit that they do means the very industries that power industrial economies (namely the fossil fuel industry) will have to be regulated or put out of business in order to keep our planet habitable for humans — and other life forms we need for our survival.
