Melting Arctic

Don’t stay alone facing the climate disruption!

I want to help people who are courageous enough to face the collapse of the biosphere, to be aware of how precious life is and not to be alone with it.

In the blog I try to give information as honest as possible –> just scroll down

And please check out the podcast. I have experienced, that it helps to hear other voices talking about this dire situation.

Although, if it’s just one year, I am considering filling an old chest freezer with a one year supply of ice cream, for my 93 old landlady Patricia, who I have the great good fortune to look after. And I must say she thinks it’s a great idea.

I am talking with journalist Jan Wyllie what’s most important for him in the last (imaginary) year.

FTE34 ~ AS IF – One Year to Live – Part 2

I very much look forward to hearing the other people’s perspective. It’s a difficult question and you have asked it. And I think we all need to step up. It’s the time for elders now to tell the truth.

Kevin Hester

I have asked: Imagine you know your death date about one year in the future. What is most important in your life? What do you want to do?

FTE33 ~ AS IF – One Year to Live

If you try to accept that even the human species will go extinct in a short period of time, you may be confronted with uncertainty. How will extinction happen? Nobody of us has any experience with that. Uncertainty is hard to endure.

Do a thought experiment with me and find out what death – knocking on the door – wants to tell us.

Tragedy is like strong acid – it dissolves away all but the very gold of truth.

Mass Extinction!

This is too big for you?

You don’t know how to handle it?

I thought I’d look at extinction through the lens of hospice. They know about dying. And then you scale it to a planetary dimension: a planetary hospice. I planned a series of interviews about how to prep for extinction.

I knew, that Midge and David are involved in hospice work. So I have asked them to have an interview. They both agreed, but they preferred to answer in written form. The results are two great, personal, wise and touching letters. After reading their thoughts on hospice and extinction, I have to admit that it doesn’t work that way with the planetary hospice.
