Michael Killen said that, in 2015, we will hear carbon emissions cause both climate and ocean change and they will eventually cause Congress Change.
(He did not discuss what he’d say with USGS officials.)
He also said we will continue to hear the thoughts sustainability, resilience, global warming, green house gases and climate change, but we will also hear much more of ocean change, there is already too much carbon emissions in the both the atmosphere and oceans, need to decarbonize America, air capture, need to decarbonize the planet, the need to make carbon emissions a 2016 election issue, carbon emissions entering growth period, alternative energy sources not ready to replace coal and oil, atomic energy needed as never before, race begins to turn as much coal and oil to wealth as soon as possible, need to keep methane locked under the sea; and we have a decade, at best, to decide to stop carbon emissions.
This was first time in front of a live audience he used the term Ocean Change and Congress Change. At https://www.youtube.com/user/ZeitgeistKillen you’ll find an interview where Professor Alfredo Enrione asked Michael questions that include why he made the painting “Don Quixote Meets Ocean Change” and why he links Quixote to such important topics as climate and ocean change.
