‘I wouldn’t mind a big volcanic eruption – that would give us a two year respite from global warming and might just help us get to action which the Copenhagen summit didn’t get to.’
That’s Alun Anderson, former editor of New Scientist and author of After the Ice: Life, Death and Geopolitics in the New Arctic (2009), a book that has a picture of a polar bear on the front. He is interviewed in The Ecologist, and can be seen in the accompanying illustration standing on top of a mountain in Greenland, far above the level of common humanity.
