FTE21 ~ Arctic Sea Ice Volume

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.

Arctic Sea Ice and the Precious Life

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.

Why Climate Change is Faster Than Expected

Since I am concerned with abrupt climate change – and it‘s not a very long period, 3 or 4 years – I can observe a game in mainstream media and their publications about climate change: The period of time until the temperature of our planet is rising so steep, that we are facing consequences.

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.

FTE17 ~ Holiday from Doom

In this seventeenth episode of Faster Than Expected I ask myself the question, if there can be holidays of doom, of climate disruption and the dire consequences. At the end I will guide a short meditation to find an inner room of silence and peace.
