This week on Radio Ecoshock, more revelations of coming climate disasters, as the fossil fuel bubble expands. Even the World Bank, which funded plenty of big coal plants, admits we are headed for a world 4 degrees Celsius, or 7.2 degrees Faherenheit hotter.
We talk with Olivia Maria Serdezny from the Potsdam Institute in Germany, authors of the report for the Bank.
I also include a short clip as Daphne Wysham explains the World Banks sorry record of funding big coal plants in Kosovo, South Africa, and India - lending billions of dollars. Isn't it a bit late to ask what happens when you fund all that coal burning?
But first, I toss you into the deep end. If our recent broadcast of Kevin Anderson of the Tyndall Institute shocked you, Dr. Guy McPherson will blow you away. As recorded at the Bluegrass Bioneers conference in Louisville Kentucky November 2, 2102, courtesy of film-maker Ben Evans (at yert.com)
I'm not so sure our industrial system will collapse anytime soon, but I fact-checked everything McPherson said about runaway climate change. He's got it right. You need to hear this.
