  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!

      1. Of course. I apologize for this. Listening to different POVs never hurts.

  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 😀

  5. Hambone Littletail is so genuine. I’m glad that you had him on. I hope that you will feature him some more.
    Check out one of his books if you haven’t yet. One is called Peruvian Plunge. I love it!!!!!!!

  6. Hi, is it possible to download the podcast as an mp3 ?
    Many thanks for the show…

  7. Very interested in your show. However, until it is easily downloadable, I won’t be able to. Please make your podcast available to download.

  8. I just heard some very bad news. The FCC has voted 2-1 to end Net Neutrality. That means that only the most commercial sites will get high speed and sites such as this will have the slowest speed possible-which means no views.

    Have you heard this?

  9. Just a quick thought about the 8 March 2017 interview of Paul B. by Jennifer — which was EXCELLENT!
    Would have to agree w/ Paul that there are SO many “physical” factors, and SO SO many interactions between them, that trying to “know” with any certainty at all about WHEN EXACTLY some particular situation will come to pass and WHERE it will be true is dubious. For example, trying to put a date on when 100% of the human population has died everywhere is problematic, especially if you want that date to like a year, let alone to a day! As Paul points out, the Earth is a rather large place; something we infinitely arrogant humans consistently ignore. So, trying to call that to even a year is EXTREMELY difficult.

    But, you can work the ~problem~ a different way. Instead of saying what year it will happen in, you could consider how far out in time you’d have to go to get to a certain level of certainty that the event will have occurred. For example, if we keep on w/ BAU, then it seems a good 95% certain that the human population will fall to at most 1% of current levels by something like 2100; for the simple reasons that by +4C, agriculture will proceed to collapse, effectively everywhere on the globe, and so almost all humans will starve, or otherwise perish. That is not of much help of knowing when the die-off will start. It does, however, help understand what WILL *ultimately* happen.

    So, yes, NTHE is, admittedly, an oversimplification — especially if you think of it as a singular event, at a single point in time, or a short duration. If you think of it as an expression of the ultimate state, then the HE part is accurate. And, getting to that state will be comparatively NT when viewed from a geological or biologically historical rate of change perspectives.

    So, no, the entire world will not end, and all humans die, one Tuesday afternoon, at, like 3:17pm. 😉 That only happens, perhaps, in scenarios of nuclear war, or the Earth being struck by a meteor. After all, that kind of event would be rather sudden, though even then, the effects of it might well take a good bit longer to play out …

  10. I am new to Extinction Radio; having just heard about it through The Collapse Chronicles 9-8-18 YouTube posting with Mike Ferrigan & Jennifer Hynes and CC’s Sam Mitchell. Loved all of it.

    I’ve worked on global warming issues on and off since the early 1990’s and even dressed my child up in a global warming costume for Halloween one year. She never let’s me live that one down.

    Back then, I knew growth could not continue forever but never thought I’d live to see such dire effects. I feel like I’ve arrived in a foreign land without a map or a compass (or cell phone). Guess I was conveniently leaving myself some wiggle room that it turns out I don’t actually have. Maybe Global Warming is worse than a nuclear war? I wrote 10 reasons why I think this is the case. Writing it helped me come to grips with reality as I view it.

    I also try to keep in reasonably good physical condition and work on my relationships with more diligence and love. What are others doing?

    Thanks, Gary

  11. Titles of the productions would help, as some people may not be familiar with the names and don;t know what the topic might be.
