Crisis in Capitalism and Cascading Climate Chaos

Crisis in Capitalism & Cascading Climate Chaos // Published on Sep 15, 2017

I discuss how ongoing and cascading climate chaos is the root cause of our crisis in capitalism.  The US is considered one of the richest and most powerful countries in the world, yet is being brought to its knees from repeated hits due to Superstorms made worse by climate change chaos.

It is not just climate change that threatens people.  As technology rapidly advances, and more and more jobs are lost due to artificial intelligence and robotics, capitalism will be at risk of complete collapse. How do we address these growing risks and come out standing at the other side?

Always a favorite of Paul’s, back again for the upteenth time on Radio Ecoshock:  Mind-bending Climate Strikes, Posted on September 13, 2017.  As master host Alex Smith says:

‘Inhuman heat predicted by new science from Europe. Lead author Simone Russo explains 55 degree C (131 F) heat’ worldwide.  ‘From Ottawa, climate scientist Paul Beckwith walks us through the forces behind record storms, fires, and floods.  Record-breaking Harvey, followed by the largest hurricane ever seen in the Atlantic …  West engulfed in fire, millions flooded out in Asia – who can keep up in a destabilized climate?  We’re going to try this week on Radio Ecoshock. We start with … science from Italy about the incredible heat to come. Then our regular guest scientist Paul Beckwith paints the big picture missing in the media….’


Extinction Radio Episode 77, 12th September 2017 – Paul Beckwith, Tiokasin Ghosthorse  (FYI, for those of you who might not yet know him, his Facebook link is here).  Great episode.  Goes to about 1:17:37.  Interviewed by ne plus ultra raconteur, master interviewer Mike Ferigan.  Also always a favorite.
