Recent Interviews

I was interviewed 9-10 July 2014 for several hours by Reese Jones. The first 9 clips are embedded below. The entire collection, which will be updated soon with additional clips, can be found at this link.

A months-old podcast with RE and Monsta is linked here from the Doomstead Diner. Apparently primary topics are religion and morality.


My forthcoming book is co-authored by Carolyn Baker. Extinction Dialogs: How to Live with Death in Mind has been submitted to the publisher and is scheduled for release before 1 October 2014.

  • A moth that had flown around the porch light all night laid upon the floor. It’s wing would flutter a bit in Zephyr’s breath. But only in that forlorn breeze.

    Beyond our mothers there is a deeper mother of life. The Great Mother – basking in her relations with her sun, her moon… her universe. The Earth is our Great Mother, she bears all the life we know.

    We are one of her children.
    Killing her… killing her children.

    We have struck the fatal blows.

    Nothing is sadder than dear Great Mother’s death.
    Oh how we have sinned.

  • logspirit: we are not the ones who set up this set of living arrangements that we were born into, indoctrinated and trained to maintain and help GROW – so the fact that we’re aware of this information (the death of Earth by our own hand) affects us in ways that our brains process through acculturation, to be OUR FAULT, when it clearly isn’t (because we have no one to blame or “go after”).

    If YOU had set it all up this way, so that you would benefit and everyone else suffers, people would come after you to (ahem) “complain.” But it’s been running this way for thousands of years now! How can you be held liable for not knowing any other way UNTIL IT WAS TOO LATE?

    Most of humanity is ignorant of these facts: they don’t know about the ~ 40 yr. lag between fossil fuel combustion emissions and their effect on the climate; they don’t question electricity, only use it and take it for granted; they don’t know anything about methane or radioactivity for that matter; and they certainly are ignorant about near term extinction.

    The entire edifice of civilization will collapse before most people have any idea what is actually going on and will only wonder why it suddenly doesn’t work any more when it gets really bad (no electricity, no water coming from the taps, no food at food stores, etc.).

    ogardener: nice choice there, thanks.

  • I intend to keep on going until either I can’t or it becomes too miserable to continue on.
    Once homo sapiens evolved, he began his march around the world bringing with him death & extinction.
    With the discovery that coal could substitute for charcoal in blacksmithing & iron processing, the trap was set, then we added oil & natural gas & we were trapped becoming totally dependent upon a temporary fossil resources for our very existence.

    Now at 7.3 billion & still growing, we are doomed to collapse.

    In the 1960’s I could see that we were overpopulated & chose not to have children.
    Now along with overpopulation, I have added climate change/global warming as another reason we are doomed.

    The methane bombs are going off & will continue to do so for at least another 40 years even if we could immediately stop using all fossil resources but of course we can’t stop using them.

    You don’t have to rely just on the information Guy provides, there is a lot of evidence out there that verify his analysis of our predicament.

    Tons of dead fish, more severe & frequent storms, heat waves, droughts, floods, rising extinctions that will eventually include us.
    Take a look at this YouTube channel to see how much our weather has been changing month by month.

  • We’ll be returning in two minutes to tell you what we don’t know. Stay tuned.

  • Isn’t it peculiar that we all think we’re going to have some say in how we go out. Oh, I too am going to wait until death comes to get me, then at the last minute – i’ll do it myself! Right. Let’s see how it actually happens.

    It usually goes something like: a tree falls on your house during a storm while you’re asleep, or a large branch falls into your windshield as you’re driving; you go swimming or fishing and just keel over from a hydrogen sulfide plume blowing by; you’re traveling in your car when a big-rig veers over the centerline and hits you head on; you’re standing in line at a fast food spot at lunch and somebody does a random drive-by or the building explodes or collapses; the building you live in collapses out of the blue – or it just explodes; the plane you’re on crashes or is shot down; one morning you wake up feeling ill and find that it’s terminal (maybe this is where you can decide).

    In other words, we (mercifully) don’t even know it’s coming and then it’s over.

    Here’s a few documented examples from a few days ago:

  • “Mystery Surrounds 100-Metre-Wide Hole at Russia’s ‘World’s End’ – 17/7/14 ”

  • AP NewsBreak: Obama opens East Coast to oil search
    From Associated Press
    July 18, 2014 9:59 AM EST

    ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Opening the Eastern Seaboard to offshore oil exploration for the first time in decades, the Obama administration on Friday approved the use of sonic cannons to discover deposits under the ocean floor by shooting sound waves 100 times louder than a jet engine through waters shared by endangered whales and turtles.

    Obummer strikes again.

  • I have found a special place on the web where one can read the conversations of individuals that do not realize that people like myself are reading their comments. They must believe that no one in the chat room is black, muslim, hispanic or republican.

    Turns out you can sign up for a chat room for particular teams on athletic scholarship recruiting websites. (In the South, especially, football is king. There is nothing else but football. Particularly the SEC!!!)

    My brother-in-law (thankfully, not a climate denier) told me he chats every am. Well, I signed up.

    I ran into the most sickening, vitriolic, and moronic comments about politics or, any topic really. Much of it is mundane (weather and “good morning”) and about football but I was surprised how much was pure nonsense. Oh, I left out crude. However, these people do not think so.

    If we had any real time left on this place, anthropologists would flock to hear the conversations. Clearly it exposes the deepest depravity. Some of the comments cannot be printed or forwarded to another person. The shame would be terminal.

  • Shep
    It’s not that,
    “They must believe that no one in the chat room is…”
    They don’t care.
    Trolls write to get a response.

  • mt

    This ain’t trolling. They are all buddies. Pick one, sign up, and try it. u will be amazed.

  • Are we past the crook in the hockey stick?

    “The monthly anomaly of the global average SURFACE temperature in June 2014 (i.e. the average of the near-surface air temperature over land and the SST) was +0.32°C above the 1981-2010 average (+0.68°C above the 20th century average), and was the warmest since 1891.”

  • Once again, apologies on the delay in getting up Part II of the Podcast.

    Doom keeps us very bizzy on the Diner.

    The podcast features only Guy & Monsta. I did not participate in this section of the recording.



    Scientists knew it was coming, and now it’s here: The first U.S. cases of chikungunya, a virus carried by mosquitoes that can cause fever and joint pain, have surfaced in a Florida man and woman who have not traveled to any of the foreign countries where the disease is common, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The two cases indicate that the virus may begin to pop up more frequently in the region.

    . . . .

    Two species of mosquitoes spread the virus — Aedes aegypti (the same critter to blame for spreading dengue fever) and Aedes albopictus, both of which are found in the southeastern U.S. and parts of the Southwest. A. albopictus also resides farther up the East Coast through the Mid-Atlantic States, as well as in the lower Midwest region.

    . . . .

    Chikungunya joins another scary-sounding disease enjoying the limelight this week: babesiosis, a malaria-like illness caused by microscopic parasites that infect red blood cells and are spread by certain ticks. Six cases were reported in New Jersey on Thursday, with five other suspected cases being investigated, according to the Ocean County Health Department. Though not everyone who gets infected develops symptoms, babesiosis can cause fever, chills, body aches, and nausea; it can also lead to complications that include hemolytic anemia, unstable blood pressure, and even death — particularly for at-risk patients such as those who are elderly or living with compromised immune systems.

    Three more cases of rare human plague found in Colorado

    Three more people in Colorado have been diagnosed with the plague after coming in contact with an infected dog whose owner contracted a life-threatening form of the disease, state health officials said on Friday.

    In all, four people were infected with the disease from the same source, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said in a statement.

    Last week the department said a man in an eastern Colorado county whose dog died of the plague had been diagnosed with pneumonic plague, a rare and serious form of the disease.

    The man remains hospitalized, but authorities have not released his condition.

    The three people in the latest reported cases had “mild symptoms” and have fully recovered after being treated with antibiotics, the department said, adding that they are no longer contagious.

    Two of the patients in the new cases contracted pneumonic plague, the department said.

    Pneumonic plague is the only form of the disease that can be transmitted person-to-person, usually through infectious droplets from coughing.

    The bacteria that causes plague occurs naturally in the western United States, primarily in California, New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. [read the rest]


    Tracking the Footprints of the Arctic Methane Monster: Black Craters in the Siberian Tundra, Methane Lacing 2,500 Mile Wide Smoke Plumes Over Gigantic Arctic Wildfires.

    Is the Arctic Methane Monster climate science’s version of he who must not be named?

    For apparently, Arctic Methane, in all its various permutations, has become the gas that mainstream media and climate media now no longer mentions.

    NASA’s CARVE study has been silent for a year, the University of Maryland has stopped putting out publicly available AIRS methane data measures, the NOAA ESRL methane flask measures, possibly due to lack of funding, haven’t updated since mid-May, and even Gavin Schmidt over at NASA GISS appears to have become somewhat mum on a subject that, of late, has generated so much uncomfortable controversy.

    Despite this fading out of the topic and related publicly available data, likely due to an overall discomfort with the potential nasty implications of an expanding Arctic methane release combined with efforts by conservative political forces to de-fund observational climate science, large Arctic carbon and related methane stores remain vulnerable to the various forces set in motion by human-caused warming. In essence, it’s a problem that won’t go away no matter how much you ignore it. [read the whole article]

  • Global Physicians Issue Scathing Critique of UN Report on Fukushima

    Fukushima: Bad and Getting Worse


    “IPPNW concludes that Fukushima’s radiation disaster is “far from over”: the destroyed reactors are still unstable; radioactive liquids and gases continuously leak from the complex wreckage; melted fuel and used fuel in quake-damaged cooling pools hold enormous quantities of radioactivity “and are highly vulnerable to further earthquakes, tsunamis, typhoons and human error.” Catastrophic releases of radioactivity “could occur at any time and eliminating this risk will take many decades.”

    “IPPNW finally recommends urgent actions that governments should take, because the UNSCEAR report, “does not adhere to scientific standards of neutrality,” “represents a systematic underestimation,” “conjures up an illusion of scientific certainty that obscures the true impact of the nuclear catastrophe on health and the environment,” and its conclusion is phrased “in such a way that would most likely be misunderstood by most people…”

  • I visited a friend yesterday and his comment was that the downing of the airliner over Ukraine and the escalation in Gaza have taken everything to into a new zone. His first thought: yet another false flag operation. The worse it all gets, the higher the markets go.

    Orwellian surreality on steroids.

    Logic suggests ‘they’ will be able to keep it up till October, after which depletion, ever-bigger repair bills, widespread impoverishment and ever greater imbalance will burst the various bubbles. However, we have thought that many times before and somehow the rubber bands duct and tape hold it together.

  • @ kevin

    yet another false flag operation.

    I cannot build a strong case to support my argument, because I’m not privy to the inside information, very few people are, but my impression from all over, and from watching the ‘sarin in Syria’ false flag, there’s a certain degree of co-operation between Putin and Obama, in that Putin left Obama a face-saving way out of that crisis, which was hours away from being full out bombs and missiles on Damascus.

    My impression is, that a few people in Washington and the Pentagon DO understand that if Russia is pushed too hard, then it will mean all out war, which will go nuclear almost instantly, which will obliterate USA and Russia, and much else.

    There is the lunatic American faction who either don’t understand that, or don’t care, or think they can survive and win, or that they can push a proxy war right up to Russia’s border, retake Crimea by force and get away with it. That strikes me as insane, but those people are insane.

    Thing is, if Russia doesn’t oblige and give them their war with this latest provocation, what comes next ? They’ll have to mount an even more blatant and desperate move.

    One of the Right Sector nutters tweeted that if Europe won’t back them and give them what they want, and abandons them to Russia, then they lose, but they’ll take down the whole of Europe with them because they control 11 nuclear plants which they can Chernobyl-ise.

  • Israel bombing a Palestinian home

  • I’ve been disallowed from joining the NTHE face book page, because my name may offend some parents.

  • ulvfugl.

    I am trying to maintain composure by not believing one word that comes from any politicians or anything the mainstream media write or say.

    And acquaintance I was speaking with today recently got shafted by the local ‘newspaper’. As ‘The Empire’ progressively alienates more and more people a point must be reached where ‘The Empire’ loses control.

    I wonder what ‘devilish plans’ Iran and North Korea are working on, now that the spotlight has been turned on Russia.

    It’s all bollocks. I don’t even bother reading much on the Guardian or Independent these days.

    I do not believe the US is actually prepared to fight any major war (conventional or nuclear). I postulate US war-mongering is primarily for domestic crowd control, maintaining the pretence that the US actually has military capability. That game has been played over and over for the past decade, with only small countries that are incapable of defending themselves being attacked.

    I believe the death-by-a-thousand-cuts will continue for another year or so.

    The California drought may trigger collapse. Who knows? All I know for sure is that every day that passes everything that matters is made worse by ‘the system’.

  • “I’ve been disallowed from joining the NTHE face book page”

    I have climbed out of, and refrained from entering the wallows – Facebook and Twitter – when their foulness became preponderant.

  • An occupied house exploded in my town a few days ago, cause unknown.
    Fortunately no one was home at the time. The home collapsed due to the explosion, and, while the fire company put out the fire, the home is a total loss.


    New cases of Ebola virus have been found in four additional counties in Liberia, raising the number of affected counties to seven out of a total of 15. The four counties are located in the west, center and east of Liberia, while the virus has affected mainly western parts of the county. Ebola has spread through several West African countries, including Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, since its latest outbreak in February. The death toll from the virus has surpassed 600 despite efforts by regional and international health experts to contain the epidemic. Guinea is the worst-hit country with more than 500 people losing their lives. Liberia has reported 105 deaths since the outbreak there in May, while 142 have lost their lives in Sierra Leone. There is currently no known cure for Ebola, a form of hemorrhagic fever whose symptoms are diarrhea, vomiting and bleeding. Some people in the affected communities reportedly believe that outsiders are spreading, rather than fighting, the Ebola outbreak. WHO noted on Tuesday that there have been at least 68 new deaths in the region from last week alone, bringing the death toll to 603 since February.

    The virus has continued its spread throughout Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, despite local and international efforts to contain it. Epstein revealed that the main focus in the three countries currently is finding people who have been exposed to the disease, and placing them in a 21-day incubation period to see if they are infected. “It’s probably going to be several months before we are able to get a grip on this epidemic,” the WHO spokesman offered. WHO Director-General Margaret Chan said about mobilizing leaders in West Africa to work together in welcoming medical professionals treating victims: “Sometimes the challenge for us is countries like to do disease control their way. But I think this is one such situation where countries must come together and adopt a similar approach to deal with a very dangerous disease.” The virus, which was first discovered in 1976, is known to have a 90 percent death rate for those infected. “The situation in West Africa should be a wake-up call to recognize that this weakening of this institution on which we all depend is not in anybody’s interest,” Scott Dowell, director of disease detection and emergency response at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said during a briefing in Washington. “In my view, there’s no way that WHO can respond in a way that we need it to.”

    Ebola virus symptoms include a sudden onset of fever, intense weakness, muscle pain, headache and sore throat, which is followed by vomiting, diarrhea, rash, impaired kidney and liver function, and in some cases, both internal and external bleeding, WHO explains. Christian relief organization Samaritan’s Purse, which has sent a medical team to the region to offer help in battling the disease, said last week that it is directing efforts at an Ebola isolation center in Liberia, near the border with Guinea. “This is the largest outbreak of Ebola since it was first discovered in 1976 and it is the largest outbreak in Western Africa, with cases now showing up in national capital cities,” said Ken Isaacs, vice president of programs and government relations for Samaritan’s Purse. “Along with medical treatment, awareness and education are the keys to containing this outbreak.” Samaritan’s Purse President Franklin Graham has added that Ebola is “one of the most deadly diseases in the world, and it must be contained as quickly as possible.”

  • What about God? Is there a master plan? Evil spirits appear to be arriving back in time for the final days.

  • What about transhumanism as a way to live on?

  • “What about God? Is there a master plan?”

    Once one realises that there is neither “I” nor “not-I” there is no scope for G_d and for non-G_d. The play has a Master Plot, and everyone is both actor and audience: the Playwright, not being subject to the limitations of space, time and causality, is masquerading in myriad roles as each and every one of them, doing such a fine job of it that each is convinced of its own individuality.

    Transhumanism is another act in the play.

    There are ways to escape from the delusion, but that is a whole ‘nuther story. One approach is the Aryan Eightfold Path.

    We still know shit, we’re going to say shit anyway. Plus, we look good.
