Andrea Dutton PhD: When the Climate Change Penny Drops

November 5, 2020

Interview from American Geophysical Union, 2019, San Francisco.

    From Maryland all the way along the coast to Texas, storm-surging, beach-eating, rain-bombing tropical storms will be reminders for many. In Alaska the melting permafrost is destroying infrastructure (and washing into the sea). In Phoenix, they’ve counted 53 days over 110°F this year. While we’re at it, record-size wildfires and choking red skies over your home might penetrate a few thick skulls. A few dam- or levee-busting rainstorms in the heartland might get a few people’s attention, too.

    Other than that, there’s nothing to worry about.

    Seems 70 million people haven’t “got it” yet? That’s a lot of intellectual MIAs.
