Isaac Asimov’s warning about climate change and deforestation (1986)

This is certainly not the topic which made Isaac Asimov famous, but he did write about climate change in an extremely powerful and conclusive way. In just a couple of paragraphs he manages to perfectly explain the science behind the mechanisms that drive anthropogenic climate change.  He presents the dangers of feedback loops and runaway global warming. He also puts an emphasis on the crucial importance of forests, a fact that we rarely hear in the debates surrounding climate change. He sees the curbing of deforestation as the first step that we should take to slow down the warming of our planet. Listen his words in the video by Climate State below, or read the excerpt of his book.
