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.
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.
During the last year 2017 I have published 12 episodes, including this one. Please listen to the excerpts of the episodes that have been played most. This is a review of the FasterThanExpected podcast in 2017.
What makes a biologist like Guy McPherson suppose, that the climate change leads to the demise of the human species? One of the answers we will hear in this episode is: Habitat, habitat, habitat!
Aber morgen kam schneller, als ob die Zukunft niemals woanders gewesen wäre, sondern die ganze Zeit Teil der Substanz von jeder Gegenwart, die sich lediglich wieder und wieder selbst zu einer neuen Unterscheidung anordnet, die nie wieder neu sein kann.

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.
