Dropping Anchor in an Exponential World

I was interviewed in March by Nick Burk from Relief Analysis

“Kevin Hester’s unique journey has led him to the conclusion that we are perilously close to the extinction of all complex life on the planet. It is a passage that has encompassed a career of heartfelt activism in his native New Zealand that began by instilling a value system to never be prejudiced to his fellow human beings.”

“As a teenager, Mr. Hester was active in New Zealand’s anti-apartheid movement. During these formative years, the organization he worked for, H.A.R.T. (Halt All Racial Tours), received a letter from Nelson Mandela on Robbin Island, saying that his work had “shined a light into a very dark cell.” Mr. Hester has a broad and rich career in advocating for social and environmental justice that even included blockading a  vessel during the height of New Zealand’s anti-nuclear movement.”

Balance of the Relief Analysis post and interview here

I'm an anti-imperialist, environmental activist and blue ocean sailor, who is passionate about the earth and all it's inhabitants without favour. Brace for imminent impact as we bare witness to the non-linear unraveling of the biosphere and habitability disappearing for most if not all complex life on the only habitable planet we know of. To quote President Niinistö in North Russia: ‘If We Lose the Arctic, We Lose the World’. Folks we have lost the Arctic.

    Climate Change comes to Johnsonville Wellington. Last Friday I saw a Monarch Butterfly flitting around the garden! We’re in the middle of Winter! Cold temps are supposed to have ended their reach until another summer.

    July 25th down in Jville in my shorts. NZ climate not cold enough for longs. Sat down and a healthy stroppy sandfly landed on me for a feed! However because of all the meds in my bloodstream it decided no I’ll leave:I feel rejected! Fleas are the same they do not like the my taste.

    22 degrees Celsius in Christchurch – in the coldest month

    That’s pretty warm, even for summer! This, I am told, exceeds Australian winter records.

    “National Institute of Water and Atmosphere Research forecaster Ben Noll says at least some of the past week’s warm weather in New Zealand is due to climate change….Temperatures are also being affected by warmer-than-usual seas around New Zealand, a situation which is not unprecedented, but is unusual for mid-winter”

    “There is a certain piece of this that is likely linked to climate change – whether that piece is 5 per cent, 30 per cent, or 60 per cent, we do not know”

    Try 90%!

    This is nothing but a comtemptible lie!

    I would like to confront this Ben Noll from NIWA.

    Either they are idiots or they are paid to conceal more than they reveal.

    I suspect the latter

Kevin Hester

Kevin Hester is currently living on Rakino Island, a small island in the Hauraki Gulf near Auckland, New Zealand, monitoring the unravelling of the biosphere and volunteering at the Rakino Island Nursery is currently developing a proposal to create a marine reserve near by. The Island has no grid tied electricity or reticulated water.  I catch my own water from the roof and generate my electricity from the ample solar radiation on the island.
