Humans are doomed, and we'll be gone by 2050, says scientist GUY McPHERSON. Rapidly escalating climate change--triggered by our hydrocarbons--will destroy our habitat very soon. And no captain of industry or civic leader would risk damaging his career or stock portfolio to save the species.
Next week: What to do? This week, McPherson focuses on how serious the situation already is--and how mired in denial are all the leaders and institutions of the "civilization" that caused the calamity.
