On the occasion of the UN Climate Conference in Lima, Peru, this week's Global Research News Hour examines the latest research into the causes of Earth's current Climate predicament. Guy McPherson is emeritus Professor of natural resources and the environment at the University of Arizona, He is the author of about a dozen books including 'Going Dark' and his most recent, ' Extinction Dialogs: How to Live with Death in Mind.' co-authored by Carolyn Baker. Guy is the author of the Nature Bats Last blog at

Professor McPherson believes that there is virtually nothing umans can do to reverse the damage done by modern industrial civilization and that humans will likely become extinct as a result of runaway Climate change by the middle of the twenty-first century.

Professor McPherson explains his thesis of Near Term Human Extinction, the need to come to terms with the grief that goes along with that realization, the problems with geo-engineering as a remedy, and the problematic behaviour of both political leaders and mainstream environmental organizations in the face of the Climate Predicament.
