FTE21 ~ Arctic Sea Ice Volume

The Arctic Sea Ice Volume is 2017 at it’s ever recorded low. Maybe this sounds somehow special, but what‘s going on in the Arctic now has huge consequences for the climate of the planet. In this episode I have an interview with Torstein Viddal from Norway, now living on Greenland. He is a novelist, has a master in information science and is an eco activist since decades. Torstein is following data of ice extent and volume in the Arctic very closely. Now in 2017 he has observed the lowest ice volume of millions of years. Prof. Peter Wadhams gives us an introduction, why the Arctic sea ice is so important.

FTE19 ~ worldwide connected ~ Burden on Other Species

co-hosted episode with Kevin from New Zealand and Wolfgang from Germany

This episode we want to dedicate to the animals and the burden inflicted on the other species by us, Homo sapiens. In times of abrupt climate change or ongoing anthropogenic climate disruption, there is no doubt, we are in the sixth mass extinction event. Billions of animals are dying and suffering. And 200 species (of animals and plants) are going extinct every day.

 

FTE18 ~ Exponential Disaster

These days climate disruption leads to an exponential occurrence of disasters. Hence, I am talking with the American disaster manager Nick from ReliefAnalysis. I talk with him about different phases of disaster management, about exponential extreme weather events and about a hospice situation.
