1. Great show! Thanks for the link.
However, I think that the presenter is too optimistic. Forcing this kind of information on the vast majority of people will cause one of two things -- a mass panic, or a mass denial.

People are left miserable by the "American way of life", yet they will hang on to it like grim death (which isn't very far behind if we keep going in this direction).

I'm going to work for change on this, starting with my own lifestyle (in which I already do several things, but not nearly enough). I'm just more of the mindset that it's important to do because it's the right thing to do, not out of optimism for a positive outcome in the end.
