Episode Description:

When we actually face what’s happening on the planet, the picture isn’t pretty. Author Carolyn Baker (Speaking Truth To Power) is concerned by rapidly-unfolding climate change, and the fragile Fukushima reactor situation. Systems thinker Dave Pollard (How To Save the World) sees endgames for three inter-related systems—economic, energy and ecology—any one of which could lead to civilizational collapse.
We’re in a predicament we can’t fix, but we can choose how we respond. Carolyn suggests thinking of the Earth community, of which we are a part, as being terminally ill. Take time to reflect on our lives, make amends, and value the time we have. Both guests suggest learning how to live in community, being present for one another. Dave is intrigued to create stories envisioning life in a century or so, stories that can inspire the resolve to directly face these turbulent times. [,].
