COMBATTING GREENHOUSE GAS DENIERS
CO2, METHANE, & MORE
Listeners to Eco-Logic are all too familiar with the harmful effects of greenhouse gases but there have been many articles in both progressive and conservative publications, e-lists, and websites that are spreading misinformation that these harmful gases are not so bad—really!
Scientists who agree about climate change (and almost all of them do, unless they’re paid not to) main disagreement is when the “tipping point” will be reached and then measures after that point will not be able to stop it.
Some of the earliest-mentioned tipping points have long been passed.
Our guests today are climate activists Ken Schles and JK Canepa, both with the No North Brooklyn Pipeline Campaign and active in many other environmental organizations.
The science has been clear for many decades - greenhouse gases are causing the climate crisis.
What is a greenhouse gas and why are they called that?
What is a tipping point and why is it important?
How do we address what the deniers are saying?
What did the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) have to say about methane?
Which greenhouse gas is created by nuclear power plants?
CO2 and methane aren't the only greenhouse gases--what are others?
Why is it so easy for people to be complacent to this creeping global danger?
What is being done?
How is industry co-opting environmental bills, such as the Inflation Reduction Act?
Gases being “natural” doesn't mean they aren't harmful when over produced. Even arsenic is natural.
In our news and announcements section we report that the EU Parliament voted to adopt a law regulating sustainability claims on product labels. The law will prohibit retailers from making general environmental claims and sustainability claims without evidence; the Repair Association petition drive for right-to-repair comments to the FTC is picking up, but more are needed; update on upcoming events held by Our Powhr in the fight to stop the Mountain Valley Pipeline.
We have environmental music for you: Oli Frost, a wonderful satirist, with A synth-pop ballad for greenhouse gas emissions data.
