Todays guest on Nature Bats Last is Canadian Climate System Scientist Paul Beckwith;
The October episode “The Case For Declaring A Climate Emergence” is embedded here; Paul Beckwith on Nature Bats Last
Due to connection issues the start of the interview is a bit chaotic, ironically like our climate system but I promise it gets better. Paul comes on at the 24 minute mark after I discuss a Dahr Jamail article (more details below) and the brief clip from Professor Guy McPherson
Paul and show host Kevin Hester discussed the increase in methane, tornados, seismic and storm activity which is directly linked to abrupt climate change;
Paul has recently created this presentation on the looming “Blue Ocean Event” in the Arctic;
“A NASA satellite is tracking flooding in the Carolinas after Hurricane Florence and its images show that rivers and streams near the coast and spilling dark, discolored water into the ocean.” This ‘water’ is heavily laced with numerous pollutants no doubt including ionising radiation from the 12 nuclear plants that have just been water blasted by Hurricane Florence;
“Thawing Arctic permafrost is a huge concern for climate scientists. Within these frozen sheets of past plant life, thousands of years of greenhouse gases are thought to lie trapped. As global temperatures rise and permafrost begins to melt, that gas is slowly released into the atmosphere. Researchers’ greatest fear is that this Arctic off-gassing will start a feedback loop: The more greenhouse gases released by permafrost today, the higher temperatures will climb and the more gases will be released tomorrow.” There is so much methane in this lake you can light the air on fire.

“Across the Arctic, lakes are leaking dangerous greenhouse gases. And one lake is behaving very strangely.” Arctic Cauldron by Chris Mooney.
Due to a connection issue at the beginning of the presentation I asked the PRN studio to play a portion of this clip from Professor Guy McPherson titled; “Overview of Abrupt Anthroprogenic Climate Change;

Dahr Jamail will be publishing his latest book “The End Of Ice” on January 15th 2019, I’ll be interviewing him on Nature Bats Last on February 5th alongside Professor Guy McPherson who resumes co-hosting duties from December, Dahr will tour both Australia and Aotearoa N.Z. in July 2019. Watch this space for more updates
“Assiduously researched, profoundly affecting, and filled with vivid evocations of the natural world. Jamail’s deep love of nature blazes through his crisp, elegant prose, and he ably illuminates less-discussed aspects of climate disruption. . . . A passionate, emotional ode to the wonders of our dying planet and to those who, hopelessly or not, dedicate their lives to trying to save it.”
