In the podcast episode about the Blue Ocean Event Guy McPhersons part begins at 13:07 min.
At minute 15:45 he concluded:
I think the Blue Ocean Event has meaning well beyond symbolic. The Blue Ocean Event symbolizes industrial civilization. It symbolizes the must-go-faster-mentality that takes us to the abyss ever faster. So it could – it could, I am not saying it will – it could very well create conditions under which there is no habitat for humans, in a matter of a year, two, three years, within a very short period of time in any event.
