Dahr Jamail interview on his latest book “The End of Ice”,on Nature Bats Last.

The End of Ice

“He is a superb journalist, in the most honorable tradition of that craft.” -Howard Zinn.

Nature Bats Last welcomes Dahr back to the show to discuss “The End of Ice” and the planetary implications of the collapse of the cryosphere.

The audio of Episode 123 is embedded here;

Dahr Jamail, staff reporter at Truthout.org and renowned Martha Geldhorn award winning journalist published his latest book “The End of Ice” on January the 15th 2019.
There are a few audio glitches on Dahr’s microphone but they don’t persist. We joked after that they were reflective of industrial civilisation teetering on the brink of collapse;
Mentioned in the interview was a new project of collaboration between Dahr Jamail and 

“How, Then, Shall We Live? Finding Our Way and Peace of Heart Amidst Global Collapse.”

We further discussed the recent work of Jem Bendell and his paper on “Deep Adaption” and Rupert Read’s recent presentation filmed at Churchill College, 7 November 2018.
“A research paper concluding that climate-induced collapse is now inevitable, was recently rejected by anonymous reviewers of an academic journal.”

“It has been released directly by the Professor who wrote it, to promote discussion of the necessary deep adaptation to climate chaos.”

Both presentations and the “Deep Adaption paper are embedded here; This Civilisation is finished.

I quoted the president of Finland President Niinistö in North Russia: ‘If We Lose the Arctic, We Lose the World’

Additionally I quoted Albert Bartlett to reiterate the non-linear aspect of the predicament to draw attention to how quickly things will unravel. Dahr spoke about the multiplicative effects of feedback loops;
“The Greatest Shortcoming of the Human Race is it’s inability to understand the exponential function”. I’ve embedded the abreviated version of Al Bartletts presentation above, I highly recomend watching also the full presentation.

Dahr will be touring Australia in June and Aotearoa N.Z. in July, details will be posted on this blog as presentations are organised, subscribe to  the blog for updates on the tour and the great unraveling generally. Contact me should you wish to be involved in anyway in both the Aotearoa NZ tour or the June tour in Australia
Good luck everyone, we are so going to need it.

Professor McPherson mentioned his latest book and the upcoming documentary Only Love Remains: Dancing at the Edge of Extinction is now available.

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 mentioned “Last Born in the Wilderness” in this months episode of Nature Bats Last, here is the latest interview with Dahr.


  2. Robert Schick, rogue composer says:

    Mourning Kevin. As you know i appreciate ALL you’re doing. And, or course, Dahr’s research and passion. Having noticed that there were only 2 comments, i think it might have more to do with the terrible sound quality of the podcast. Best, robert schick


  3. Jacob Gordon says:

    Hello from the States. I echo Robert’s comments regarding appreciation for your work and wanted to pass those sentiments along before I no longer have the opportunity to do so. Very tired and sick of people (other messengers and commentators alike) from the so-called “doomisphere” taking shots at you. That said, in the modern parlance of my neck of the woods: you are the man. Thank you for your efforts, Kevin.

    Strikes me that what McPherson, Dhar et al are saying is that “it’s so bad that you can’t do anything therefore don’t bother”.

    Which is almost exactly what the oil and gas titans would want us to do.

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.
