Friday Night, I’ll be interviewed on the internet live show Environmental Coffee House by host Sandy Schoelles. The show (started by a concerned non-scientist interested in the environment, science and technology) discusses a variety of environmental and climate issues. I’ll be brought on to talk about increasing extreme weather events, climate change and abrupt tipping points, and environmental destruction, including the 6th mass extinction. The show will be live streamed on Facebook and has thousands of followers. Give it a watch, it’ll be a serious discussion (maybe 30-40 mins), but should be fun.
Below are some articles which may relate to what we discuss in the interview. Almost all are VERY recent articles! (First three articles are technical peer-review papers, remainder are recent news articles for non-scientist consumption).
