"Climate Chaos"

Here is the latest Science Saturday diavlog from, an interview of Jamais Cascio (Open the Future, by Mike Treder (Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies).

Topics covered include …

  • Damage done by delicious cheeseburgers
  • Why global warming is the biggest problem of our century
  • The evil and the stupid among those who welcome a warmer world
  • Is geoengineering the solution?
  • Asteroids, intelligent machines, and other threats to humanity
  • Will our civilization survive much longer?

… but it's not quite as much of a bummer as it might sound.
