Yours truly on climate change program

I would like to call your attention here to a TV program concerning climate change that is appearing on select cable-TV systems in Twin Cities region of Minnesota.

My perspectives on climate change are the featured in this 28-minute edition of Democratic Visions  a community access series produced by Jeff Strate with the help of other volunteers who live in the southwest suburbs of the Twin Cities.  Jeff, a St. Olaf College classmate of my wife, Kathy, and me (class of 1966), superbly manages the interviews shown in this video.  The program is enhanced with numerous graphics and recent video news clips and  comments concerning climate change issues.  I serve as the (generally) serious climate change scientist and humorist Jon Spayde, in the guise of his “Professor of Negativity” character, adds an imaginative and delightful  5-minute dose of dark humor.

The entire program is posted on YouTube at
