Hot: living through the next 50 years on Earth

Dr. Jack D. Fellows, Director of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Climate Change Science Institute, discusses Hot: living through the next 50 years on Earth by Mark Hertsgaard. "This book is a great history of the climate change debate as well as offering a look at the threats and opportunities future generations will face from a changing climate. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand how we have gotten to this point in our history, and what we can do about it." (Recorded October 15, 2014)
