"Climate is not weather. But when climate arrives, it arrives as weather."
~~ On Point host Tom Ashbrook
We have had a year in which radio and television reporters sound like they are actors in future disaster films. Today, Tom Ashbrook and his guests focus on a country that finally is paying attention.
Only 10 percent of Americans are categorized as "dismissive," believing that climate change is some kind of hoax. As Ashbrook points out, this minority has had disproportionate influence, but perhaps that is changing.
Callers represent a wide range of views, which are addressed with clarity -- and patience -- by Tom's guests.
