Climate-Fueled Sea Level Rise: How Screwed Are We? (Spoiler Alert: Very)

I joined The Big Picture with Thom Hartmann last night to talk about how climate change is fueling an acceleration in the rise of global sea levels, a phenomenon that’s hitting especially hard on America’s East Coast.

A lighter moment at the end when Thom asked me about “clean coal.” Remember when people believed in that mythical creature? So ironic that the same people who screech the loudest about a similarly made-up “war on coal” now (Sen. Jim Inhofe, Sen. Jim Webb, etc.) were the same people who sealed coal’s death warrant by blocking national clean energy & climate action legislation, which would’ve been loaded with carbon capture & storage subsidies.

    Look at the Colorado Springs fire as something that will become commonplace in our weather to come.
