A new interview of Guy McPherson with the Canadian Prepper

A new conversation (dated September 2, today as I type this) with Dr. Guy on the Canadian Prepper site, a new group looking at the issues of NTHE. If you’re joining late, this is a well thought out discussion of current news in warming. Some new ideas circulated. You can find it on Youtube Here. […]

Guy McPherson packs it in(sort of)

If you’ve followed this blog space for any length of time, you know that I’ve been greatly influenced by the work of Dr. Guy McPherson. He has been postulating that we’d passed a point of no return on climate some time ago and that (at the end) only love remains. Anyway, this video found itself […]

The Guy McPherson Empire Blues Medicine show

Dr. Guy McPherson is coming to New York in late February. Dates are still being set for speaking engagements, and if you have a venue, he will be willing to respond. There’s information on his new website, the Empire Blues Medicine Show. You can be sure we’ll talk to him on Sex and Politics, but […]

On WBCR–Climate change and extinction discussion with Guy McPherson *(updated)

Reminder, and Shameless self promotion here. I do a radio show out of Brooklyn called Sex and Politics. We broadcast/webcast starting at 8 PM on Friday nights and also webcast simultaneously. On June 20, I spoke to Guy McPherson, professor emeritus in Natural Resources and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, who has written a book GOING DARK, […]

The McPherson Paradox (updated)

So THIS happened–a group of earnest committed young people went to Senator Dianne Feinstein’s office to ask her to sign on for the ‘Green New Deal‘ program being pushed by progressive Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders (technically not a Democrat, but Progressives will take you if you’re warm). Things went badly. Someone took […]

Latest from Guy and other things

I was really moved by Dr. Guy McPherson’s latest video. Yes, he’s still talking about near term human extinction. No, it ain’t fixed. No, it probably can’t be fixed. But he’s no longer the methodical, analytic individual I first encountered when watching his videos from 2012. I think he’s playing to an audience of his […]

After 2023 What?

This echoes the title of a Robert Benchley anthology I grew up with as a kid. AFTER 1903 WHAT? Published in 1938, I suppose it was a satire on the hinky apocalyptic things being circulated by evangelicals who (as we know with hindsight) were wrong. Anyone alive in 1903 (or 1938 for that matter) knew […]

Climate conference online–a thought from Kevin Hester

It’s five people who are scientists or political activists or a mix of both. All bemoaning the fact that much of the scientific world has thrown in the towel on preventing global warming from reaching an extinction point. But this was a point made by Kevin, who I’ve quoted here before. Kevin has been around […]

Stop whining about e-cars (and veganism)

Okay. I’m writing this to get caring people who don’t understand our coming rendezvous with the SIXTH MASS EXTINCTION to realize that McKibben and Gore and all the other ‘folk heroes’ of climate activism don’t have a clue. short story (and I’m tired of being vilified for this): Switching to E cars won’t help; ending […]

We close out of Vancouver Fringe

And as of September 19, we closed out of our digital run on the Vancouver Fringe Festival. I’d be less than honest if I stated that I was happy with things. I didn’t get much of an audience. I certainly tried harder than I have in previous Fringe fest Outings. Ads for my play ran […]
