BANNED BROADCAST

GUEST: George Monbiot, s a well known environmental and political activist based in the UK, and a columnist for The Guardian newspaper; his book is called “Heat: How to Stop the Planet from Burning.”

Most of you know well the reality and danger of climate change, and that global warming is happening as a direct result of human behavior through the burning of fossil fuels and the release of greenhouse gases into our atmosphere. Today we spend the hour, not as much discussing the scientific consensus over global warming or the political struggle over what to do about global warming. Instead, we’ll talk about exactly what goals need to be met to stop the planet from literally burning to death, and what all of us, individuals, organizations, and governments, can do to meet those goals.

My guest is British journalist George Monbiot who come years ago wrote the book, “Heat: How to Stop the Planet from Burning.” The book became a best seller in Europe and Canada but Monbiot could barely convince a publisher in the US to print it. It was eventually published by South End Press.

George Monbiot has written books like Manifesto for a New World Order He writes a weekly column for the Guardian newspaper.
