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

Abrupt climate change leading to near term human extinction is a tragedy. Let us develop this drama step by step to dis-cover the gold.

Shakespearean tragedies follow these rules too. I’ll take Macbeth as an example.
Similarity (Mac…) to actual persons is purely coincidental.

Learn from Hospice as Human Extinction Looms

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.

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.

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.

Prepping for Hospice

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.
