This is the first worldwide podcast episode, co-hosted by Kevin Hester, New Zealand, and Wolfgang Werminghausen, Germany. We are talking about the role of water in abrupt climate change, the lack of water, floods, risk for nuclear power plants and the inner connection with the whole nature, that can be experienced with water.

Kevin Hester is living on Rakino Island, a small Island near Auckland New Zealand. He is a lifelong activist for ecology, for peace, against nuclear power and weapons and since some years he is tireless warning the world’s public about the dire consequences of the ongoing abrupt climate change. He is the living example, that the assumption, someone who is certain about the near term human extinction, will do nothing anymore, is really bullshit. We can laugh about that.


Wolfgang Werminhausen is living in Münster, Germany. He has 4 children and is more than half of his life father of children. After study of psychology and working as psychotherapist, he had a trip into the world of finance for some years. With the insight, that the economic paradigm of infinite growth is a delusion and does harm ecologically, it was only a small step to Guy McPherson’s theses of abrupt climate change and the near-term human extinction.

Kevin and Wolfgang really have a different temper, you‘ll hear it obviously. So this an experiment, if this teamwork is working. Of course, we have one aim: to connect people in these dire times of collapsing bio-systems. Please give a comment on facebook.

Thich Nhat Hanh, a famous buddhist master from Vietnam:

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
