Twenty years down the line

PZ Myers has referred me to the following video featuring an Isaac Asimov from 1989. As a big time Asimov fan it was a rare pleasure to watch the man with the sideburns speak; I’m used to photos of his or stories of his, but not hearing or seeing him in live action:



I took two things out of this video:
  1. Asimov really has that English accent I commonly associate, rightly or wrongly, with New Yorker Jews. It made me laugh.
  2. Humanity has had worthy people warn it about the dangers of climate change for decades now, and still no one is listening. Then we moved twenty years further and still nothing is being done.
