The heat is on

Thanks to a reader for this link:
TruthOut's Environment Editor Kelpie Wilson recently interviewed Ross Gelbspan, author of The Heat is On and a new book, Boiling Point: How Politicians, Big Oil and Coal, Journalists and Activists Have Fueled the Climate Crisis - And What We Can Do to Avert Disaster. Mr. Gelbspan was a longtime reporter and editor at the Philadelphia Bulletin, the Washington Post, and the Boston Globe. Somewhere along the way, he made the transition from journalist to activist as he realized that the overwhelming impact of global warming on humanity required much more attention than the U.S. mainstream media was willing to grant it. He has joined with the Climate Crisis Coalition to launch a drive to gather millions of signatures from U.S. citizens for a "People's Ratification of the Kyoto Global Warming Treaty."
