Last week, Professor GUY MCPHERSON showed that climate-change disaster is imminent and probably irreversible. The species Homo sapiens will be extinct by 2050, he forecasts. This week he discusses whether any force could rescue us (probably not) and then considers the ethical question, How should we behave in the face of our impending demise?
Then a short comic sketch by GEORGE CARLIN, who--similarly--discusses ways of going out with style.
For both men, it's Doom yes, but Gloom not necessarily.
