Deadly Weather: ‘This Is Just the Beginning’

Posted on Jul 3, 2012
Democracy Now!

Recent weeks have seen the worst wildfires in Colorado history, the breaking of 2,000 temperature records, a mid-Atlantic storm that killed 23 and left millions without power, and a heat wave that sent the East Coast and the Midwest back to the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. But few mainstream meteorologists are talking about climate change.

Suzanne Goldenberg, U.S. environment correspondent for The Guardian, and Jeff Masters, meteorology director at the Weather Underground Institute, discuss these events on “Democracy Now!”

Christian Parenti, professor of sustainable development at the School for International Training and author of “Tropic of Chaos,” joins the discussion to argue that the right-wing assault on the public sector leaves Americans more vulnerable to the effects of global warming.
