Whether you are a “radical environmentalist” who believes we have got to shut down all emissions based production, or a “radical skeptic” who can drum up a truck load of evidence that global warming has more to do with Cattle flatulence and decomposing trees… Or if you are just someone who likes living on planet Earth, You Have To Tune Into This Episode of “Full Monty Leadership Radio”!
On October 27th, 2012 the debate about climate change and rising sea levels became a rather moot point for anyone living on the eastern seaboard of the United States.
Hurricane Sandy with her 100+ mile an hour winds demolished and devastated 8 of the United States with the death toll reaching more 100 people and leaving more than 4.6 million homes and businesses without power.
Whatever side of the isle you stand on, (“radical environmentalist” or “radical skeptic”) there needs to come a point where people’s lives become more important than who’s right about climate change, or how we got here… The fact is we are here.
We are losing 150-200 species that are part of our very fragile ecosystem every 24 hours!
Let me hammer that one home; that’s nearly 1,000 times what is considered to be the “natural” rate. Many biologists say, this is greater than anything the world has experienced since the vanishing of the dinosaurs nearly 65m years ago.
Listen folks, the mentality of; if I’m not directly experiencing it, then it’s not real, certainly got a slap upside the head from our pissed off aunty (Hurricane) Sandy, and it’s time we woke up.
My Guest on this show is John Englander, he is a pre-eminent leader in his depth of knowledge, understanding, and ability to make the subject of changing weather patterns and the impact it’s having on the oceans simple enough for someone with no such background to understand and take positive action.
He is an Oceanographer extraordinaire… He has been the CEO of the International Sea Keepers Society. However, if you really want to understand how respected this guy is in his field, in 1997 the most respected oceanographer of our time… Mr Jacques Cousteau asked John to take over the leadership of The Cousteau Society.
John Englander is also a Special Adviser on Climate, to Friends of the United Nations
Over the last 3 years John has been writing his book: High Tide on Main Street, to bring awareness of rising ocean levels. It’s a book in which he clearly predicted the super storm of Hurricane Sandy and the impact it would have on Manhattan.
This is just a small sampling of where this great interview goes.
Make sure you share this with your friends and tune in on Thursday April 25th @10:AM (Pac) 1:PM (EST)
Why? Because you are a leader!
