mcpherson guyWednesday, Sept. 18, 2pm EST:  Mitchell’s guest this evening is University of Arizona Professor Emeritus, Guy McPherson, Ph.D.  Today’s show is Part 2 of 3.

Today, Mitchell interviews environmental scientist, Guy McPherson, about the true seriousness of our environmental plight this very moment.  Based on unfiltered science, Guy interprets the findings of global dimming, greenhouse gas overwhelm of our atmosphere and the presence of nuclear power plants throughout the world as painting a very dark future for humankind.

Guy R. McPherson is an American scientist, professor emeritus of natural resources and ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Arizona. He is best known for promoting the idea of near term extinction (NTE), a term he coined about the possibility of human extinction as soon as 2030.

In May 2009, McPherson began transitioning to living on an off-grid homestead in southern New Mexico. McPherson authors a blog called “Nature Bats Last”, that focuses on global apollo earth picclimate change, energy decline and the possibility of imminent human extinction due to the increasing accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. On November 1, 2015, McPherson was interviewed on National Geographic Explorer with host Bill Nye.

Regarding his NTE views, Andrew Revkin in The New York Times said McPherson was an “apocalyptic ecologist … who has built something of an ‘End of Days’ following”.Michael Tobis, a climate scientist from the University of Wisconsin, said McPherson was out of his depth and “is not the opposite of a denialist. He is a denialist, albeit of a different stripe.”

Guy was a guest on A Better World Radio & TV last September.  http://abetterworld.tv/mitchell-rabin-interviews-environmental-scientist-guy-mcpherson-ph-d-on-near-term-extinction/

A Threat to National & International Security
A Threat to Democracy, A Threat to a Dignified, Cooperative & Compassionate, Diverse Society
Our and all sentient lives are at risk now like never before due to Global Warming, the severe ice melt, increased methane release and the precipitous, unpredictable rate of eco-system collapse about which government is making the problem worse and business, while some sectors of it are moving quickly, others are moving very slowly and continuing the polluting, Greenhouse Gas-emitting activities, or ‘business-as-usual’. Even the Pentagon gets the seriousness of it, but the President does not.  And his little puppy dog, majority, so-called ‘leader’ of the Senate, sits comfortably in his lap awaiting his next command.
As though that weren’t enough, add to it the continued nuclear threat only worsening due to ignorant policy-making by a man incapable of thinking through the consequences of his actions and just wants every agreement with his name on it–in fact, he wants a planet with his name on it.  This is how sick this person is, that he sees nothing outside himself in its own right.  Everything is a reflection of himself, as we saw with the mythic figure of, guess who?  Of course.  Narcissus.  Everything, in one way or another, is me!  If it weren’t so tragic, it would be hilarious.
Add to this, that those with guns in this society, a very small percentage by the way, don’t get that assault weapons are for war, for the military, not civilian use or ownership.  Add to that, a supremacist, racist xenophobe bully in the White House who thrives on anger, attack and inciting divisiveness.  We have to be painfully honest about this because we need to know what we’re dealing with.  He is a child in the playground who wants to own and control everything, he wants to be loved by everyone and will destroy anyone or anything that gets in his way toward such control or ownership (ownership being a form or control).  Meanwhile, probably very few love him including his own wife and kids.  So he takes it all out on the rest of us and on the Earth which is just another commodity for exploitation.
This all adds up to a man who manipulated his way into office, engaged the help of foreign nations and entities, would take help from any source he could, offered Putin a Penthouse, would do anything to get into office as he has no moral compass to guide him–he’s the one who said he could shoot someone on 5th Ave. in the middle of the day and “get away with it”.  He does everything in the middle of the day and does get away with it.  What he does is so outrageous but because he does it in broad daylight, no one can believe it!  But in fact, well, let us say it is my opinion, that he is aiding and abetting violence against people of color, of different creeds and against the Earth and we have to stop him.  Not just the election or impeachment.  The OLC regulation needs to be removed so a sitting President can be indicted.  We the People must demand it and that he be expelled from the White House and criminally prosecuted.  His conspirators are the Republicans in the Senate and House, equally, if not more responsible for the damage that has been done.
And toward solutions, we could really use 1/3 of the military budget which it knows it doesn’t need anyway, and with the business community, we can get this ship turned around.  Remember that we love everyone, and we also love the truth and justice.  The truth must be seen, spoken and acted upon which in turn brings justice.  It is out of love of life and Creation that we cannot allow a group of unconscious, out of touch with the heart people to destroy our future.  It’s not acceptable on God’s beautiful Earth.  We would be betraying ourselves to allow it.  And if government policies are so remiss, it is simply up to us, to protect and safeguard our future.  We have solutions in abundance–we simply need the collective will to fully execute.
