Nature Bats Last Episode 121

In the November episode of Nature Bats Last returning former host and founder of the show Professor Guy McPherson and co-host Kevin Hester discuss the unfolding ecological armageddon, the convergence of the re-rise of fascism with the unraveling of the biosphere and the potential for a nuclear war to be used as a geoengineering ‘tool’ to cool our over-heating planet and endangered biosphere.

I have covered the issue of a nuclear war leading to a nuclear winter previously on this blog; The Inevitability of Nuclear War and Subsequent Nuclear Winter

Below is a quote from an article published by Scripps that I mentioned on the show titled; “Study:Oceans have absorbed 60 Percent more heat than previously thought”
“The result significantly increases the confidence we can place in estimates of ocean warming and therefore helps reduce uncertainty about climate sensitivity,” Keeling said.

I’ve embedded the link above from my Facadebook wall as moments before the show Professor McPherson clicked on the link and noticed it has been removed/deleted from the Scripps website after it had shared from my wall 92 times! I have emailed Scrips for an explanation and will add their response to the comments section of this blog when, if ever, I receive a reply.

A quick search of the quote brings up a similar article to the one that has ‘disappeared’ quoting aspthe same Scripps science paper. It is embedded here;

“On average, eelgrass meadows stored 27.2 tons of organic carbon per hectare, although the variation between the regions was considerable (from three to 265 tons per hectare). Hotspots for carbon sequestration were identified especially in the Kattegat-Skagerrak region, and southern parts of the Baltic Sea where the organic carbon stocks were over eight times higher, than in the Archipelago Sea of Finland.”

Feedback loops like the recent discovery that the loss of sea grass could represent the loss of one of our biggest ‘sinks’ are covered here;Are we losing one of our biggest CO2 sinks?

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.

    I’ve had a reply from Scripps Institution of Oceanography about the link we discussed in the show. The reply reads;

    The headline for the story was updated (as is now noted in the story), which changed the URL. I have made the story available at both URLs, so the link you have should now work.

    Great interview with Guy again Kevin. The speed and urgency is really off the charts now. And I attempt to have these discussions with people all the time, whether they like it or not. In the end only our relationships can be important to us. But the complacency and denial is strong in our culture. Anyway thank you for continuing to get the message out and across as time is incredibly short.

    An interesting debate between two great men trying to navigate the 6th great extinction.
    I’ll quote Joanna Macy
    “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.”

    Thanks you two for the update. I concur I want to know what’s happening…if nothing else it helps me prioritize what has meaning in my life and when I get overwhelmed to allow myself to say time to take a nap! Love and hugs to you both.

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.
