Are you feeling despair about your future? the future of humanity? the future of life itself on our beautiful blue, green, and brown planet? Join the Near Term Human Extinction Support Group on Facebook and tell our empathic peer community about it! Or are you feeling strong enough to offer support to others who are struggling? Join the Near Term Human Extinction Support Group on Facebook and respond to a request for empathic peer support from a community member.

The NTHE SG is designed to facilitate a forum for friendly and non-threatening discussion about issues of concern, primarily revolving around various environmental threats to human survival. Based on trends determined by scientific research, members have accepted that human extinction is inevitable in the near term due to anthropogenic global warming (AGW) and its consequences, including nuclear fallout. Physical causes such as wars, environmental degradation due to habitat destruction, and pandemic health threats leading to NTHE are also considered.

We share information about the specific symptoms of our earth’s illness and on the social, psychological, philosophical, spiritual, and emotional consequences of living with the knowledge that the world may soon be free of humans. Due to the sensitive and vulnerable nature of what is shared, it is a closely-monitored closed group. Click Description in the sidebar for complete rules of conduct and posting guidelines.

  1. Hey!
    Love Extinction Radio.

    However, I thought that your last guest-Tim Garret-was not terribly impressive. I couldn’t believe what he was saying about ‘negative feedback loops’ and ‘inertia’ when it came to climate change. Not only does he contradict what many other scientists are saying (Guy McPherson, Michael Mann, Peter Wadhams, Paul Beckwith, James Hansen, etc), but his stance doesn’t even make sense. He even went as far as saying that many past guests are ‘advocating’ the extinction position. Who the hell advocates something like that?! These people are simply stating the evidence that is crystal clear before them.

    I was simply amazed, and not in a good way.

    Other than that, the rest of the show was awesome!

  2. Jennifer Hynes, Peter Wadhams chat. Jennifer was impressive. Good radio voice, technique ,skillful interview.

  3. Have you ever thought about interviewing a YouTuber named PinkBarrio? He also does stuff on the environment, and he is also very witty like Hambone Littletail, but in a different way. You should check him out.

  4. I just want to tell you all how much I really appreciate ER, and I also want to stress that I appreciate the guests that you bring on your show even if they are people who I strongly disagree with. After all, we need to hear different voices in this time of abrupt climate change. On stating this, I truly need to talk about Stuart Scott.

    First off, I have watched some of his videos and I find that this man-as basically astute as he is about how dire our situation is, suffers from hopium. He is always talking about solutions to what I see as a predicament. Secondly, his hostility towards Dr. Guy McPherson was nothing short of palpable. He claims that Dr. McPherson tells people that we should all just ‘kiss our children goodbye’ and do nothing, which is inaccurate. Dr. McPherson is always telling us to take action, and he always quotes Edward Abbey by saying that “Action is the antidote to despair”( I adored how Ms. Hynes made that exact quote to Mr. Scott while it seemed to go over his head that McPherson uses that quote, and often- LOL). McPherson also tells us to live a life of excellence in these times, which can mean many things to many people-one of those things being activism. However, what really disturbed me was how Mr. Scott( who I don’t think is a scientist himself ) actually made the catty implication of Dr. McPherson not really being a true professor! That blew my mind, and I thought that it came from an incredibly immature place. Then, it came to me. There was a guest that you all had on this program ( I can’t recall his name right now ) who stated that the reason why Dr. McPherson gets a lot of hate aimed at him is because his timeline is so short that he takes everyone’s ability to negotiate away! And the amusing thing is that Mr Scott’s view of the future is pretty similar to McPherson’s-large die-offs, heat cutting through the ability to grow food. I think this man honestly feels that we can still save ourselves-that we can still negotiate-which is laughable, just like his Nobel Prize project for environmental activists-which strikes me as simple lollygagging in order to look like his group is actually doing something for the earth!

    I think that Ms. Hynes did a wonderful job with the interview with her pointed questions and her loads of patience.

    I would have lost my own patience with this man.

    Thank you for letting me vent 😀
