Anson Nash and Kevin Hester continue their extinction dialogues discussing strategies for managing grief and doing meaningful work at the edge of extinction, including installing Penguin breeding nests on Rakino Island .
“Researching and writing about the impacts of runaway climate change, as I’ve been doing now for too many years, I’ve watched several patterns recur.”
“One of these is evident in a recent warning from the UN. Biodiversity chief of the UN Cristiana Pașca Palmer warned that if governments around the globe don’t work to bring a halt to the loss of biodiversity and succeed in implementing a plan to do so within two years, humans could face our own extinction.”
What on earth does anyone expect these opportunists to achieve in two years when in reality the situation deteriorates by the hour?
Dahr Jamail’s latest article which we discussed is embedded here; In the Face of Extinction, We Have a Moral Obligation.
Dahr will be publishing his latest book “The End of Ice” on January 15th 2019.
In July next year he will be coming to Australia and Aotearoa NZ on a book launch tour.
I’ll be co-ordinating the NZ leg with speaking engagements already planned at Mangarara Eco Lodge and I’ll be looking for venues and organisers in Wellington, Auckland and on the mainland, please contact me if you wish to be involved in any capacity. I will be interviewing Dahr Jamail on Nature Bats Last on The Progressive Radio Network on February 6th just after the book has been launched.
The show and the previous 121 episodes can be found in the NBL archives at PRN.FM
