The reckless building and landscaping behavior putting 1600 firefighters at risk is the story hidden behind the smoke clouds. More soon on @dotearth.

Here's my Dot.Earth piece explaining how we came up with Our Warm Regards - a weekly climate podcast in which a curious paleoecologist, worried meteorologist and gray-bearded environmental journalist discuss the end of the world as we knew it.

A segment from my interview with Josh Fox on how he came to the unusual focus of his new climate film: Josh Fox: "The climate movement and the fracking movement were onstage going, ‘Rah, rah, rah, we’re going to win, this is what we have to do.’ But in private moments were saying things like, ‘Oh my God, we’re totally screwed.’ There were a series of those conversations…which made me feel that there was a real problem here -- that going out and campaigning and saying we just need to develop renewable energy was rather simplistic.
"And I’d seen a lot of climate films which were so depressing that you just wanted to kill yourself and didn’t want to do anything. And then I’d seen a few which were so overly simplistic – all we have to do is chase renewable energy -- and I felt like this was not doing justice to the topic because it wasn’t the emotional weight of the catharsis. I remember having a conversation with Tim DeChristopher, where I said, “Are we lying to ourselves? And he said, Yeah, we are. We’re going to have massive upheaval from climate change….” https://youtu.be/zWXELfdPq1s?t=5m

Spectacular to see mapped Earth imagery evolving in this way. It's way easier to build a "whole-Earth" conservation ethic when folks have a clear view of things. http://dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/01/17/googles-earth/

Yes I agree, and it will be easier to find and extract natural resources with which to make our lives more comfortable...truly a wonderful thing.

Podcast Number 2 from @ourwarmregards! Great mix of issues explored, from mammoth restoration to Game of Thrones to the oldest Twinkie - all in the context of Arctic climate and ice trends. Some links etc:

Snow and ice are disappearing from the Arctic region at unprecedented rates, leaving behind open water that’s much less reflective to incoming sunlight than ice. That, among other factors, is causing the northern polar region of our planet to warm at a faster rate than the rest of the northern hemisphere—a phenomenon called Arctic Amplification. And over the past several months, it’s become increasingly obvious that big changes are happening now. Right now, not 5 or 10 or 20 years from now, Now.

In this week’s episode, we’ll talk about all those changes -– and what they say about what we do and don’t know about the melting Arctic.

Oh, and we’ll also talk about how Game of Thrones relates to climate change.

Check out the recommended reading list below.

My interview with Josh Fox, the director of the anti-fracking manifesto "Gasland," describes his new film, which tackles a far vaster issue, climate change. In the film, "How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can't Change," Fox circles the world conveying stories of people grappling with oil spills, coal ships, choking smog, superstorms and other environmental threats.

The filmmaker's learning journey almost founders as he runs into a wall of despair conveyed by analysts seeing little cause for hope. But love and the energy that comes from community action save the day, if not the climate.

The film debuts on HBO on June 27. The documentary is coupled with a push by Fox and others to spur bottom-up social and political action through "house parties" and other events. Learn more: http://howtoletgomovie.com/

Which comes first, Peak Everything or Peak Us? I explore this question daily on http://j.mp/dotEARTH and at Pace Univ. The rest? Family, songs, friends, living.
Introduction
I explore the balance between human affairs and the environment for The New York Times at my blog, Dot Earth, and as the senior fellow for environmental understanding at Pace University's Academy for Applied Environmental Studies. In spare moments I write songs and perform in a rootsy twangy band, Uncle Wade.
