We Are So Fucked and Sooner Than Previously Thought!

In my recent interview with the amazing Professor Paul Ehrlich titled, Nature Bats Last on PRN.FM featuring Professor Paul Ehrlich we discussed climate scientists dishonesty/ reticence  in understating the severity of the climate crisis.
I’ve toured Aotearoa New Zealand twice with the courageous Professor Guy McPherson, one award winning academic who does call the Sixth Great Extinction event exactly what it is. We attempted to speak truth to power  on our two tours and we addressed the mis-information and dishonesty in the climate community from  NGO’s like 350.org , Greenpeace and WWF ,which incidentally was set up by the British Royal Family. ( I’ve embedded this link for proof that the entitled British Royal family were instrumental in founding WWF not that I think that the gratuitous bowing and scraping to the British Empire disguises the Crimes of Britain and the role that Colonialism and Imperialism have played in this disaster).

How on earth would you expect the truth from them in the midst of an existential crisis? When the paid activists within, need to project insupportable ‘solutions’ whilst ignoring the evidence that we have crossed a multitude of Tipping Points. They project ‘Hope’, thereby deceiving those they are leading down the extinction cul-de-sac. Both the jobs of the paid activists and the corporations these multi-million dollar NGO’s have become depend on the Millions of Dollars they suck from the same supporters they are lying to. Of course they won’t admit to the severity of the crisis. Follow the money.

Clive Hamilton is an Australian public intellectual who’s written books about global warming, among them: Requiem for a Species and Defiant Earth. His books were intended to enlighten the public. But as he says: “anyone who engages publicly in the climate change debate has been subject to threats and abuse from a global army of climate science deniers. There are a lot of disturbed, angry people out there, which is, of course, socially worrying.”
In the embed link and podcast  Are We F–ked? Decoding the Resistance to Climate Change Clive Hamilton discusses the phenomenon of climate scientists saying one thing in public and another in private. I urge you to listen to the podcast embedded above.
Here’s a teaser; “No one wanted to pay attention to the implications of a world four degrees warmer… It’s too horrendous to think about.  And no one talked about it. Then a few scientists said let’s have a conference and actually talk about it. They held this conference in Oxford and I went along. As the conference started, there was a kind of suppressed emotional intensity, except in the coffee breaks. It was then that I would buttonhole a couple of scientists and say: ‘Well, you know we’re speculating about this. But what do you really think is the situation?’ And one of them just looked at me and said: ‘We’re f–ked.'” — Clive Hamilton. Remember the flack Dr Jason Box received for his famous Tweet? “If even a small fraction of Arctic sea floor carbon is released to the atmosphere, we’re f’d.”
“Oil giants Shell and BP are planning for global temperatures to rise as much as 5°C by the middle of the century. The level is more than double the upper limit committed to by most countries in the world under the Paris Climate Agreement, which both companies publicly support.” At the edge of extinction only lies remain

    I cannot pretend: I’m saddened, dismayed and devastated that we are finished! 😦 It’s mind boggling! tears and sadness. I’m 69 but this still gives me grief! And our brother animals and birds and ocean life too! Surely not!? Tell me it isn’t so?

    “So for forty years I tried to warn people. Now I tell them it’s too late and we’re f***ed, they say I’m being too negative need to give people a positive message. OK then, will “We’re positively f***ed” do?, because when we could save ourselves nobody listened, and even now when they think we still can, there is absolutely no will to do so.”
    Ian Baxter reiterates my point exactly;

    Activist Kevin Hester lays it all out. I don’t understand how the ‘skeptics’ can keep denying what their bosses in Big Oil have already admitted to–that we’re on path to extinction level temperatures before mid-century.

    “At the edge of extinction, only lies remain.” Nice spin, Kevin! Only I would argue that we’re not AT the edge of extinction – we’re OVER the edge of extinction. I propose a new tag line: Fucked in Free Fall.

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 planning Professor Guy McPherson’s November 2016 NZ and Australian speaking tour which is a follow up to the 2014 speaking tour. 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.
