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

Tragedy is like strong acid – it dissolves away all but the very gold of truth.
– D.H. Lawrence
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.
Since ancient Greek drama tragedies follow a special plot.
Shakespearean tragedies follow these rules too. I’ll take Macbeth as an example.
Similarity (Mac…) to actual persons is purely coincidental.

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.
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.
Guy discusses the questions: „How can I get out of the bed every morning?“ and “Why is Natalia Shakova lying?”
This may be one of the best documented speaking tours of Guy. It could only be possible with the extraordinary work of Kevin Hester, who initiated and organized the tour, and the film documentation and live streaming of events by Pauline Schneider. So I could join the tour from the other side of the globe here in Germany.
