To listen to scientists’ warnings would require slowing down economic growth. But to the corporate, banks, financial sectors, and the wealthy elites which control governments, that would be the ‘kiss of death’.

Come watch the highlights of this hour-long event featuring Dr. William Moomaw, the clearest and most compelling scientist of the lot.
