Song "No Such Thing As Waste" by Formidable Vegetable Sound System.
Worried about prices at the pump? Or is it still way too cheap to save a livable climate? Even big fossil fuel executives wonder if we'll find enough energy, or retain an economy to pay for it.

I'm Alex Smith. Later in this program, we'll talk with Dr. Rose Cory, lead author of a newly published paper. She found another surprise agent whipping up the production of greenhouse gases in the far North. It's yet another positive feedback loop in the rapidly changing Arctic.

That empire of permafrost is disappearing quickly. Scientists estimate ten to twenty percent will melt in this century alone. The latest research says just 1.5 degrees Centigrade over pre-industrial levels will tip the permafrost into a vast melting process, unleashing more carbon dioxide than we have in the atmosphere now.

That is a recipe for climate disaster unseen for millions of years. We are already half way there.

I'll also play you a new song, from an upcoming tour of North America and Britain, by a hot new Australian band. It's good green music for your ears.

But first, an in-depth conversation with a surprising mind, about your energy future. I phoned up to argue with physicist and Nobel Laureate Robert B. Laughlin of Stanford University. That's a mistake, because he's the expert, and anyway, Robert wants to argue. Learn a lot.
