George Monbiot Heats Up Call for Solving Climate Crisis


Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

In part one of this two-part interview, British journalist George Monbiot discusses his new book, Heat: How to Stop the Planet from Burning, with CWR co-hosts Bill Baue and Francesca Rheannon. Monbiot applauds the acknowledgment of the climate crisis in awarding of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, but criticizes recipient Al Gore for undermining the Kyoto Protocol when he was in office. He also presents the case for carbon rationing under the "Contraction and Convergence" framework. He emphasizes the necessary role of government regulation in solving the climate crisis, and discusses the paradoxes of how "regulation enhances the sum of human freedom" and how our carbon-intensive lifestyles create a "fantasy of freedom."
