Ross Gelbspan

Boiling Point Two, an almost-hour-long DVD containing a powerful speech and a post-Katrina interview with Ross Gelbspan, is now available for you to order. Gelbspan’s presentation details the latest information about climate impacts, the history of obstruction and disinformation by the fossil fuel lobby and the intransigence of the Bush Administration in the face of widespread opposition in the US and, especially, in Europe.

The talk also outlines a set of three policies that could not only reduce emissions by the 70 percent required by nature -- but, at the same time, create millions of jobs around the world, increasing the overall wealth and equity of the global economy and providing a platform to bring the countries of the world around a common global project.

Finally, the DVD features a current update about the relationship between global warming and the hurricanes that devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast this summer.
