‘Essential Carl Sagan’ – two years on

In January, 2019 only six months after waking up to the ‘Climate Emergency’ we are in, as Greta Thunberg has named it, I was offered a video of this speech by Prof Dr Carl Sagan. I posted what I considered the essential 18 minutes on YouTube, in which at a conference in North Carolina (1990) he discusses the Climate Crisis, as then known, and why we must act before it’s too late. He coins two phrases: Climate Denial and Environmental Refugee. His view was always towards Climate Justice and Equity – a necessary point of view.

Over 6,000 people have viewed and downloaded this 18 minute clip, and the vast majority of comments posted have been helpful and supportive.

I post it, yet again, in the hope that others, new to act on Climate, will find it inspiring.
