Global warming is moving more quickly than scientists initially anticipated. Even if the biggest CO2 emitters - the U.S., China and India - were to slam on the brakes tomorow, the earth would continue to heat up for decades.

Journalist Gwynne Dyer is the author of Climate Wars: The Fight for Survival as the World Overheats. You may have heard the CBC series based on the book that we aired in May last year. Today he'll talk with us about the political, military, and strategic consequences of climate change.

Gwynne examines several controversial measures to slow things down and begin a retreat from various climate disasters. Gwynne will also talk about his book tonight, June 10, at The Book Cellar on North Lincoln Ave.
