I Freeze the Blog

Sticky post

I’m shutting down my blog and podcast.

In March 2020 I took time-out.

Well, it hasn’t been a real time-out. I have guided my kids through the social shutdown of the corona wave, and I still do.

I took this time-out because I was frustrated with the ratio of the amount of effort I put into blogging and podcasting and the amount of attention. For me, writing English or podcasting means three times the effort a native speaker has.

In my perception, the attention that the topic of Abrupt Irreversible Climate Change has in the public is constantly decreasing. Extinction has become a more common vocabulary, but only in connection with hopes of how to avoid it.

With Corona Near Term Human Extinction takes an even more back seat.

Sorry, I’ve had enough.

I surrender.

I’m putting the blog and podcast on hold, at least I’m taking a break.


I have been writing this blog since 2015, initially in German, SchnellerAlsGedacht.

In 2016 I released the first English podcast episode, and English blog posts.

When I look at the highlights, I have a certain pride in what I have achieved.

Bye Bye

I will certainly write something from time to time or do an interview.

You can reach me at FaceBook.

Thanks for your attention, dear reader and listener.

El Niño 2020

Take El Niño Seriously

Is El Niño dangerous for you?

You live far away from the Pacific Rim.

In this text you will get more clarity about the global interconnections.

100% Renewables – Is it possible?

Offering renewable energies as a solution to the climate crisis is like trying to treat alcoholism with chamomile tea.

The expansion of renewable energy in Germany is regarded as exemplary for highly industrialized countries.

But Germany is flying the wrong flag with “100% Renewables”.

FTE42 ~ One Year on the Brink of Extinction

Imagine you only have one year to live.

What are the most important things you want to do?

That’s the question I have asked six wonderful interview partners. Let them inspire you to look death in the face more calmly and to accept that we are all going to die once anyway. Here I have selected a few highlights.

8 Things to DO in the Face of Extinction

(Photo by Andreas Selter on

Have you done nothing since you think the extinction of the human species is possible?

Extinction Rebellion have incorporated the “evil” E-word into their name and the hourglass’s time into their logo. Even the young Fridays for Future movement talks about the possible end of the human species. Dramatic consequences of global warming are visible all over the world.

What is to be done?

The Global Temperature Baseline Lie

Like the “Fridays for Future” movement or “Green New Deal” the Paris Agreement has already called for a limitation of global warming to well below 2 °C above preindustrial levels; and to limit the increase to 1.5 °C.
