Dahr Jamail on Trump, Climate Change, and 
the Future of the Planet
2016 will be the hottest year ever recorded. The previous hottest year on record was last year. The need for dramatic government intervention aimed at lessening impacts of anthropogenic climate disruption (ACD) is a matter of life and death for thousands of species, and millions of humans. 

The president elect, Donald Trump, has called the science of climate change "bullshit" and a "hoax." He has appointed other science deniers to prominent positions. We'll talk with Dahr Jamail about this. Dahr Jamail  is a Truthout staff reporter, and the author of The Will to Resist: Soldiers Who Refuse to Fight in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches From an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq.

Dahr will also comment on the announcement that the war criminal James Mattis will be appointed Secretary of Defense.
