If You Wait Until You’re Dead Certain About Grave Danger, You’re Already Dead

2013/02/19

It’s TED Talk Tuesday on 350orbust, and here’s a great presentation by Rear Admiral David Titley from the U.S. Navy on why he changed from being a climate skeptic to being very very concerned about climate change, and what America can do to respond to this crisis.

    Bit of a mixed message here… I see “40,000 Strong at the Biggest Climate Rally the U.S. Has Ever Seen” (That Went Mostly Unreported in All The Media That Make A Difference). I see a poster saying ‘Act Now Or Die’. And yet I see and hear a TEDx (emphasis on the ‘x’) presentation which ends… without any sense of real urgency.

      I believe this video is a few years old, so that may explain the lack of urgency.

      Or perhaps being the master of understatement is an important asset in the U.S. Navy??

    You would think that conservatives, being such supporters of the military, would listen to what soldiers are telling us about climate change.
