"Don't shoot the messenger." Richard Smith's message may be sobering, but it's based on information that suggests we've reached a tipping point when it comes to climate change. How can we reverse the effects of greenhouse gases changing our climate? Smith says we can't – at least not under a corporate capitalist framework. The logic of corporate capitalism simply won't allow the large-scale changes needed to reverse the disastrous effects global climate change will have on life on our planet.
