Last Born in the Wilderness – At The End

It was an honour and a pleasure to be collaborating with both Patrick and Rob on this important work, having the kind of conversations we desperately need to have but most resile from.
The audio from the interview is embedded here;

“How do we live with the fact that we are destroying our world? What do we make of the loss of glaciers, the melting Arctic, island nations swamped by the sea, widening deserts, and drying farmlands?”
“Because of social taboos, despair at the state of our world and fear for our future are rarely acknowledged. The suppression of despair, like that of any deep recurring response, contributes to the numbing of the psyche. Expressions of anguish or outrage are muted, deadened as if a nerve had been cut. This refusal to feel impoverishes our emotional and sensory life. Flowers are dimmer and less fragrant, our loves less ecstatic. We create diversions for ourselves as individuals and as nations, in the fights we pick, the aims we pursue, and the stuff we buy.”
 The Greatest Danger by Joanna Macy
In the interview I mentioned Cormac McCarty’s amazing book “The Road”
“If you looking for “Mad Max” like Popocalypse – don’t bother! This is Apocalypse without makeup and glamour. It has a profound,shocking,visceral,autopsy like effect,and yet it has immensely warm and uplifting moments.The cast is stellar and it performs in a stellar fashion.Amazing movie ,based on an even more amazing novel by Cormack McCarthy,the last of american giants of prose.”
If after watching the trailer below you are as intrigued as I am you’ll find “The Road” audio books on You Tube or buy a paperback to read for when the internet disappears.

Stephen Jenkinson on Grief and Climate Change.

Activist, sailor, 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.

    Parents love their children, but not other parents’ children. We are such limited creatures.

    So the UN says that our window of opportunity to solve the climate change is getting larger every year. In 1989 in was only ten years. In 2018 it is already two years or even 30 years. In other words, UN says that our need to do nothing to solve the climate change increases every year.

    Unfortunately the orcas along the N American Northwest Pacific Coast here are dying, of starvation apparently ( brought on by overfishing and Fukushima I expect ). Scientists are baffled however according to new reports.
    Great show though, keep up the good work!

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.
