Joe Romm on Climate, Obama, Keystone, and Consequences

February 4, 2013

langintelIn DC for a Dark Snow Project press event last week – I had the chance to spend some time with Joe Romm – easily the most widely read, influential, knowledgable, and important blogger on the internet for issues of climate and energy.

Joe’s Climate Progress sets the standard for green journalists,  and the agenda for climate activists, and any of us involved in this work owe a great debt to Joe’s work in this area. I was curious, at this obviously pivotal moment, what the view from one of the most well-informed insiders I can think of might be.


Joe was able to break for a few moments and chat with me in the the nerve center/man-cave of his NW DC home. We talked for some time about Obama, climate, keystone, and our kids, as well as Joe’s great new book.

This video is the boiled-down good stuff.

    Book good

  2. Martin Lack Says:

    I would like to see an unequivocal statement from Maurizio Morabito (aka Omnologos) as to whether (or not) he accepts the International Energy Agency statement that, if we want to avoid excessive/irreversible climate change, we must decide to leave most of the remaining unconventional fossil fuels in the ground. I suspect I would be best not to hold my breath…?

    Australia is the canary in the coal mine for climate-driven desertification, writes Joseph Romm from ‘Climate Progress,’ 2 Feb 2009.

    Australia will officially be drought free for the first time in over a decade

    http://www.daff.gov.au/ludwig/media_office/media_releases/media_releases/2012/april/Australia-to-be-drought-free

    Joe Romm is a climate fraud.

    • greenman3610 Says:

      you just had a 10 year drought, dude.
      how big of a board will it take to denier noggins to get? – this is what it looks like.

      • climatefraud Says:

        But the drought IS OVER, greenman3610.

        Also, New Zealand is now drought free.

        http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-05-06/nz-drought-over/4671688

        All while carbon (sic) levels are at 400ppm- a ‘dangerous’ tipping point.

        Either highest carbon (sic) levels causes drought, or it doesn’t.

        Not one model projected a drought free antipodes @ 400ppm.
        Nor one UN-IPCC catastrophic alarmist climate scientist.

        Do you deny the observations?

        Quote: “this is what it looks like.”

        Australia is a country of drought and flood that Australia’s flora & fauna has adapted to for millennia & now requires regular fires & drought to reproduce & survive.

        Australia has ALWAYS looked like this.

        You can ignore or put those facts in your noggin.

    I thought this was worth sharing. This is an excellent blog and I often turn toward it for insight, information and food for thought. Climate change dominates my thinking. . . .
