Wolfgang and I go into how scientists and their political handlers systematically underestimate the size of climate danger, and how fast it is approaching. We delve into the Tipping Points and the Self–Reinforcing Feedback Loops, but also the darker sides of the human mind, and how to handle fear.Torstein on frozen.earth

I apologize, I am not able to publish podcast episodes on a regular basis.
But I promise I will continue until the Internet is switched off or the sky falls on our heads. During a social media break I have deepened my work. It is not so important how often I publish something. The main thing is that I can offer something that helps you, dear reader or listener.
I must admit, the headline was luridly worded.
Jan Wyllie‘s little story will sound quite harmless. But hear it as a story how climate change can harm us – you and me. Abrupt climate change will harm us all – faster than expected – and maybe from an unexpected direction.
Abrupt Climate Change!
While I am recording this episode in July 2018 everywhere on the globe we are witnessing extreme weather events. For months it is really hot and dry in Germany.
On a dog walk again. Akela has an injured paw. I am walking and talking about the schizophrenic summer 2018 in Germany. It seems that everybody likes it to go out sit and drink a coffee or eat an ice cream. Only the farmers begin to talk about an emergency situation.
How do you like my new podcast format, just walking and talking?
Still my purpose is this:
I want to support people, who are brave to face the collapse of our biosphere, to be aware how precious life is and not to be alone.
So I have accepted the challenge to talk English in a free and I hope more fluent way. And I didn’t edit the recording. So you’ll hear all my “hms” and “ähs”. But I guess that disturbs me more than you.

Let‘s take a swig with Jan Wyllie. Together with Simon Eaton he has founded The Database of Environmental Change. It‘s a collection of more than 40,000 articles and their headlines about environmental issues. And it‘s growing fast. This is really core journalistic work what they are doing.
Abrupt Climate Change and the consequences for us and other living beings are severe. Changes on our earth as we know it are Faster Than Expected.
You are right here …
- if you dare to think about near term human extinction (NTHE).
- if you think there are no easy solutions.

You will find …
- courageous and honest people who talk about the most important issue.
- unvarnished informations.
- support not to feel alone in the midst of this ecological disaster.

And here comes an exclusive interview with Sam Carana!
In my view he is one of the leading scientists, who is engaged in the topic of abrupt climate change. But nobody knows who is behind this name, he prefers to remain anonymous.
In this episode of the FasterThanExpected podcast we focus on the question: How is ice melting in the Arctic and methane influencing the global temperature?
