How Far Over the Climate Precipice are we?

In this episode of “The Progressive Commentary Hour” Gary Null and I discuss the severity of the climate crisis and how far over the cliff we really are.
The podcast is embedded here;
We discuss the on-going, never ending ionising radiation nightmare that is and will forever be spewing from the three exposed coriums at Fukushima Daiichi. The triple meltdowns and melt through of both primary and secondary containment at Fukushima Daiichi is never, ever going away.
Whilst Tepco admits to hundreds of tonnes of radioactive water spewing into the acidifying Pacific Ocean every day for over 6 yrs now, they never mention the ionising radiation that is being released into the atmosphere. My personal view is that we will be spared the multi-generational genetic destruction of the nuclear nightmare by our imminent extinction. The situation simply could not be anymore dystopian.

Years ago, before we crossed a multitude of tipping points the large NGO’s and “green” political parties talked about the danger of crossing tipping points. Now that we have done so the subject is being avoided. Cognitive dissonance much?

Gary played a clip taken from Professor Guy McPherson’s  2016 NZ speaking tour when he appeared on the Paul Henry Show which reached a national audience and triggered nationwide debate about our part in the 6th great extinction. That whole show is embedded here; Human Extinction within 10 years.
During the show Gary played some excerpts from a brilliant documentary featuring the equally brilliant Nafeez Ahmed. My analysis of the documentary and the doco itself are embedded here; Human Extinction By 2030- The Crisis of Civilisation

In the discussion I mentioned Chris Hedges You Tube presentation The Myth of Progress and the Collapse of Complex Societies. 

and  Joseph Tainter’s : Energy Gain and Future Energy: Collapse of Sustainability

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.

    There’s a problem with your Chris Hedges link. Here it is: Listening now.

  5. Don Jenver says:

    How do the leadership of companies like Google, not know about near term climate disaster? Why would they bother with all of their “green” initiatives? Are they in denial, or do they really not know?

      They know and I’m sure they are preparing. There are many millionaires and billionaires pouring into Aotearoa New Zealand bugging out. They want to stall off collapse so they obfuscate and keep the sheeple as much as possible in the dark. Hence the new “Fake News” meme.
      It’s a big club and we’re not in it as George Carlin famously said;
      George Carlin said “it’s a big club and you ain’t in it.”

    Another question I have is about credit. Why is credit never mentioned as a contributor to climate change? Without cheap/easy credit, people can’t buy huge houses and huge gas guzzling cars. The high consumption lifestyle people live is made possible by cheap credit.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ That is a great point Don, the ponzi scheme of debt puts the 6th Great Extinction on steroids.


  8. Kevin Hester says:

    Nafeez Ahmed interviewed by Chris Martenson for Peak Prosperity. Great interview and on point with this post.


  9. Kevin Hester says:

    As part of my studies about the collapse of previous civilisations I have found Dr Tainter’s work fascinating.
    I will invite him to be our guest on Nature Bats Last on PRN.FM
    He’s the perfect guest for our show in many respects ( Hopium notwithstanding).
    This presentation was recorded in 2005, it will be fascinating to know how he feels about ‘renewables’ now and how 450 nuclear power station melt downs and 1200 spent fuel pool fires will fit into his analysis.

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.
