The Climate and Extinction Crises on Black Bear News

Kevin Hester and Kevin Sandbloom from Black Bear News discuss the unraveling of the biosphere,the convergence of ecological collapse,the re-rise of fascism and the attendant risks as the planets ecology and social order both stumble toward collapse. The interview can be viewed on You Tube here;


“Because of social taboos, despair at the state of our world and fear for our future are rarely acknowledged. The supression of despair, like that of any deep recurring response contributes to the numbing of the psyche”,from The Greatest Danger by Joanna Macy

The Australian Bureau of Meterology currently has us on El Nino “Watch” with a prediction that we may enter a new El Nino in the southern hemisphere spring.
“An El Niño event has been predicted for the end of the year, leaving farmers already struggling with a devastating five-year drought facing disaster.The Bureau of Meteorology announced the odds of an El Niño system forming this year are now twice as high as normal.” Weather catastrophe: Farmers crippled by the ‘worst drought in 100 years’ are facing another TWO YEARS of scorching temperatures and no rain

I believe that the next strong El Nino will inflict the final blow for the Great Barrier Reef which is already in hospice due to previous recent bleaching events. Worldwide tourism accounted for 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions from 2009 to 2013

We are in the early stages of runaway global warming that will lead inevitably to the total loss of habitat on planet earth. What geoengineering lengths will the psychopaths in the military industrial complex go to to slow down the armageddon? I believe we will see an orchestrated nuclear winter. The Inevitability of Nuclear War and Subsequent Nuclear Winter When a nuclear detonation takes place, if your fortunate not to be in the targeted zone, question the empires narrative, the likelihood of a “False Flag” being used is very high.

To fully understand the severity of the converging crises we face it is imperative to understand that when civilisation collapses or a major event shuts down the airline industry we lose the cooling effects of “Global Dimming”. This was shown in stark relief when after 911 in the USA unfolded and commercial airline flights were cancelled for the first 3 days scientists recorded an immediate 1C + temperature increase.

The interview with Professor Paul Ehrlich titled “The Annihilation of Nature” mentioned in the interview is embedded 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.

    Imposed social taboos to not talk about this…who profits from that, eh? The CIA invented the term ‘conspiracy theory’ to cancel anyone questioning any official government stories/propaganda and that includes climate collapse.

    So has anybody else noticed that when we bring up what is happening to our planet we are immediately dismissed from ‘rational or reasonable’ discussion as an ‘alarmist conspiracy theorist’ and you can see the walls come down in front of the eyes you are talking with?

    When I mention that I have a science degree from Utah State U they bring up belief in Jesus. You just can’t break through the denial with these people (and it feels like they outnumber the realists).

    The Inevitability of Nuclear War link…didn’t realize it was PCR piece that I had read before and probably have in documents in the WWIII folder. I remember ‘practicing’ duck & cover during the Cuban Missile Crisis in Mission Beach School which was about 4 line-of-sight air miles from aircraft carrier row in San Diego Bay… It has affected my subconscious ever since. Bluntly, I hope to be in downtown Spokane when that happens rather than on this mountain property 40 miles north because there really isn’t any living left to be done once the first missile is launched. Knowing that Hiroshima was a 12kt atomic bomb compared to the MIRV 10megaton thermonuclear hydrogen warheads that make Hiroshima a little firecracker. The mushroom cloud from a 10MT hit on Spokane will be over my property, and even being to the west and north behind ridgelines and mountains isn’t going to make much difference when the air concussion hits. My wood house will probably fall down from that or the ground shock.

    I figure instant death is far better than suffering for a week or two as your skin peels off and the so-called survivors raid the rural areas for supplies…

    Kevin, what are you going to do when the extremely wealthy United States psychopaths that start this flock to their bunkers and hideouts they’ve been buying up in New Zealand? They will undoubtedly bring their own private armies and will try to take over/influence the local governments, water & food supplies.

    Shades of Neville Shute’s book I’m thinking since we’re already living in Huxley’s Brave New World and Orwell’s 1984 & Animal Farm…

    I really can’t say good luck to us all because it ain’t about luck…

    In 1989 the UN said we had a 10 yr window of opportunity to avoid dangerous climate change and they failed to act.
    I suspect the reason was they found it was already too late even then.

    “The Uninhabitable Earth” was largely based on an interview with Professor Guy McPherson who was never credited with his contribution but the gist of the article is pretty good.

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.
