AP interviews Gill for article about climate change ‘doomers’

The Associated Press interviewed Jacquelyn Gill, associate professor of paleoecology & plant ecology with the University of Maine School of Biology and Ecology and Climate Change Institute, for an article about climate “doomism.” Gill told the AP that she has noticed fewer people telling her climate change isn’t real and more “doomers” who believe nothing can be done. “I refuse to write off or write an obituary for something that’s still alive. We are not through a threshold or past the threshold. There’s no such thing as pass-fail when it comes to the climate crisis. It’s really, really, really hard to walk people back from that ledge,” Gill said. U.S. News and World Report, Yahoo! News, the Independent, ABC News, and various outlets internationally cited or shared the AP report.
