Peter Sinclair interviewing Maureen Raymo

Another good video from Peter Sinclair on his YaleClimateForum YouTube channel:

Maureen Raymo is an expert in paleo-climates.  This is probably the most informative climate science specialty when it comes to anticipating the final outcome of our global experiment in climate disruption.  The rapidity of the current change is outside the realm of anything previously observed which makes it very difficult to model accurately, but the end state is not.

Predicting how we get to this end state and what humanity will experience along the way is a far greater challenge, as is predicting how our global civilization will deal with it all.
