Richard Wiles: That Awkward Conversation (About the Climate)
I've spent a lot of time lately thinking about climate change liars. Those people who make a living deliberately deceiving the public about the scientific consensus on climate disruption. These people are awful, they know who they are. They have to live with their lies.Richard Wiles
If someone told all the parents of the world that there was a 98 percent chance that radical environmental changes in the next 10 - 50 years will wipe out half of all known life forms on earth, and that famine, plagues, floods and droughts on a scale not seen in thousands of years would become routine for billions of people, you would think they would tell their kids.
Well most climate scientists in the world have been telling us that, but we don't do anything about it.
Wiles co-founded Environmental Working Group with Ken Cook. He is currently consulting on communications strategies to combat climate disruption. Prior to EWG Wiles was a senior staff officer at the National Academy of Sciences' Board on Agriculture. He holds a BA from Colgate University and an MA from California State University at Sacramento.
