Nick Humphrey, Meteorologist on Environmental Coffee House

Past the tipping point? Abrupt Climate Change Discussion with Nick Humphrey, Meteorologist

Tonight we are talking about all the weather events that are assaulting the earth, including humans and animals. Then we will take a walk into the science of “deep adaptation “, and what we all can do.

That synthesis leads to a conclusion there will be a near term collapse in society with serious ramifications for the lives of readers. The paper reviews some of the reasons why collapse- denial may exist, in particular, in the professions of sustainability research and practice, therefore leading to these arguments having been absent from these fields until now.” Dr. Bendell

"Basically the "deep adaptation" is more psychological... Dr. Bendell concludes there is no way to prevent collapse and possible extinction. It's no longer in our direct control because of processes set off by humans. It's something I'm really trying to emphasize with people because a lot of these climate researchers are not doing that. Probably because of their employers even if they wanted to share it."
