Climate Disasters’ Toll Worsened by Sustained Attacks on Public Sector, Science and Regulation

“Climate Disasters’ Toll Worsened by Sustained Attacks on Public Sector, Science and Regulation,” Democracy Now, (3 July 2012).

Christian Parenti on Democracy Now

As we discuss the spate of extreme weather in the U.S., the author and professor Christian Parenti argues that the Republican-led assault on the public sector will leave states more vulnerable to global warming’s effects. “Another thing missing from these discussions — it’s not just the words ‘climate change,’ but the words ’public sector,’” Parenti says. “I mean, who’s out there fighting these fires? It’s the public sector. Where do people go when there are these cooling centers? It’s the public sector. … This assault on the public sector must be linked to climate change.” We’re also joined by The Guardian’s U.S. environment correspondent Suzanne Goldenberg and by Jeff Masters, director of meteorology at the Weather Underground website.
