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.
During the coming weeks I want to focus my attention on the Arctic. During the summer 2017 there has not been a blue ocean event, what had meant that the Arctic Ocean is nearly ice-free. This would have an enormous influence on the world‘s climate, because the Arctic is one of the global climate motors.
Finland‘s president Niinistö has put it in a nutshell during a meeting in North Russia:
This may be one of the best documented speaking tours of Guy. It could only be possible with the extraordinary work of Kevin Hester, who initiated and organized the tour, and the film documentation and live streaming of events by Pauline Schneider. So I could join the tour from the other side of the globe here in Germany. Again and again when I see a new presentation of Guy McPherson the dire global climate situation is worse - faster than expected. If our end is rapidly approaching and we cannot ignore it any more, the way to acceptance and "living with death in mind" may be faster too. This is really a bumpy road.
Ten Minutes interview with Guy McPherson in the NZ breakfast TV, Paul Henry's Newshub. They are talking about the end of the human species conversationally. And that's just the beginning of the New Zealand Tour 2016.
Humans 'don't have 10 years' left thanks to climate change - scientist
Episode 9 promotes "Guy McPherson's New Zealand Tour 2016" from November, the 24th to December, the 7th. I hold an interview with Kevin Hester, who is organizing this tour. You may wonder that I am talking about these events on the other side of the globe, but it's clear that we are facing a global catastrophe and we have to realize that we are living on this one planet.
I am honored to have the opportunity to present five great personalities, who share their knowledge about a burning issue, the melting of the Arctic sea ice and consequential a massive change of the global climate. We may listen to Sam Carana, Guy McPherson, Jennifer Hynes, Peter Wadhams and Kevin Hester, all short and condensed interviews or statements.
