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.
This time, my podcast comes without an interview, but I describe my experiences: In mid-November I have been for a long weekend in an African village with my daughter to participate in a ritual for grief and life energy with Sobonfu Somé.
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
In the podcast episode about the Blue Ocean Event Guy McPhersons part begins at 13:07 min.
At minute 15:45 he concluded:
I think the Blue Ocean Event has meaning well beyond symbolic. The Blue Ocean Event symbolizes industrial civilization. It symbolizes the must-go-faster-mentality that takes us to the abyss ever faster. So it could - it could, I am not saying it will - it could very well create conditions under which there is no habitat for humans, in a matter of a year, two, three years, within a very short period of time in any event.
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.
In Germany scientists have observed a decline of flying insects of 80% in 25 years. For Bernie Krause - pioneer in the field of bioacoustics - the nature is more and more silent.
Two symptoms of a dying planet? For me this is a very silent drama.
