Chris Hedges interviews Dahr Jamail

The following interview is one of the best I’ve seen on climate change. Chris Hedges interviews author and journalist Dar Jamail who recently published a book entitled “The End of Ice.” It is very powerful, informative and moving, especially the discussion toward the end when Hedges asks him “How do you cope with that?”

“We may be watching earth dying, so we each get to ask ourselves what am I called forth to do at this time. Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh has written how the most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When our mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers. . . . We are already facing mass extinction. There is no removing the heat we have introduced into the oceans nor the 40 billion of carbon dioxide we pump into the atmosphere every single year. There may be no changing what is happening and far worse things are coming. How then shall we meet this?”
