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.
In the Arctic the drama of abrupt climate change is coming to a head.
It is obvious, that this drama has an impact on the whole planet. But in the public media it is ignored largely. Therefor I have begun to bring up this painful subject and I have published some podcast episodes and blog articles. This is a kind of condensed summary of this work.
Welcome to my new website, with a new host, new WordPress software, with a new design and my new domain fasterthanexpected.one, xwer.de is still working, too. My new host One.com is specialized on blogs with a WordPress content management system. It will be faster loading the pages and has a lot of space for nice pictures.
We witness an increasing global heating. It‘s coming so fast that we call it abrupt climate change.
Do you agree, that the dramatic decrease of biodiversity – 200 species are going extinct every day – will not stop at the human species?
Glad you are here!
In this dire situation we need to support each other.
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.
I have deliberately used the combination of the words „prepping“ and „hospice“. Prepping means preparing for collapse- or war-situations and it aims at survival. Some people understand that survival means to be as autonomous as possible and to save one‘s skin, at gunpoint in case of need.
But if we consider it as an ecological and climate disruption we are in a global hospice“ situation. Not survival is the aim, but to leave this planet with dignity, respect and in a bearable way. That‘s my view. Others might want to knock off each other.
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:
