Sharon Emerson (5/5/2018) wrote about the NOVA program PBS stations presented about climate change “Decoding the Weather Machine.”
My wife and I saw the program and were impressed with the credibility of documentation which seemed incontrovertible. Even more impressive were the potential solutions it presented that give hope that humanity can avoid the impending doom that is becoming an apparent reality.
Let’s face it, the discovery and utilization of petroleum has occurred in little more than one lifetime during which our planet has risen from horse and buggy days to what now is accelerating from boom to bust. In spite of angry denial, Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” is being fully validated.
But what was even more surprising about the PBS presentation was that the program’s primary sponsor was David H. Koch, the younger brother of our nation’s two most successful industrialists who until now have been politically linked to the most infamous of climate change deniers.
Another thing Al Gore pointed out way back in 2006 was the ever-increasing population explosion few want to recognize or talk about. We need to come up with better solutions than famine, pestilence, and war.
The program is a good read and can be purchased on DVD from PBS at 800-752-9727. With shipping, we’re getting ours for $23.85.
