Global warming is real – and possibly even worse than we’ve been told. Could it lead to the destruction of human civilization within just a few decades? For tonight’s Conversations With Great Minds – I’m joined by Guy McPherson -Professor Emeritus of Natural Resources – Ecology – and Evolutionary Biology at the University Arizona. Guy is one of America’s most influential experts on global warming – and writes about a variety of climate change-related issues for the Arctic News and his own website – Nature Bats Last. In the field of climate science – Guy is best known for his assertion that runaway global warming is already on a path to cause the extinction of the human race – an idea he has written about in his book – “Going Dark.”
