FTE36 ~ AS IF – One Year to Live – Part 4

Although, if it’s just one year, I am considering filling an old chest freezer with a one year supply of ice cream, for my 93 old landlady Patricia, who I have the great good fortune to look after. And I must say she thinks it’s a great idea.

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.
