Epic Podcast with Master Craftsman


My interview, ‘Embracing Abrupt Climate Change, with a Humanitarian Spirit‘ with Nick of Relief Analysis, was an amazing experience of and a great meeting of minds.  It was gigantic. So much came out of it.

He was called to my attention weeks ago, since he had not only did such a fantastically good job interviewing Professor Paul Beckwith, but followed up with spotless writing and launching his venue further at SoundCloud.  Being smart is one thing.  Best nice is another.  Being broad is a third.  He is all three.  He is the entire package.

Besides being a professional governmental person engaged in the planning, formulation, and communication about Disaster and Disaster Recovery, he has an ample multi-cultural background.  His mother is Turkish while living and sounding like any other ‘normal American’ person, who can draw from both sides.  But there is more–his wife is from Vietnam.  And you can be sure that we had PLENTY TO talk about.

I am deeply honored to be his second interview.  There will be others in his deliberate palate.  He compiled a long list of candidates and was clear in his resolve for this to be his next interview in a growing series, with lots of good individuals to choose from.

———- ———-

Remember, next Saturday, I am interviewed live on Doug Bennett’s Unspun:  An Experiment in Truth-Telling.  This is the same radio station hosting both Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now, The Thom Hartmann Show, and is on KKRN at nine am PST.  Details to follow.  Doug has interviewed the likes of Paul Ehrlich, Chris Hedges, Carolyn Baker, and former editor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal, Paul Craig Roberts who served as an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration, to name but a few.
———- ———-

There is more.  Remember II, Kevin Hester invited me to New Zealand, and I fly out the NEXT day after the Unspun interview, and will be presenting ‘Arctic Methane Emergency Public Meeting’, on Saturday February 14th, at 1 pm local–four pm PST, seven pm EST, midnight GMT.  Men, take note.  This is Valentine’s Day.  Dr. Guy McPherson will be Livestreamed in, as will Prof. Paul Beckwith.  Additionally, Dahr Jamail staff member at Truthout.org hopes to attend live also, but has yet to be confirmed. And See More Rock’s Blogger Robin Westenra will be there.  Got your attention yet?
———- ———-

After Wolfgang Wer’s translation of the Facsimile text into German, yesterday we began to receive interest in Portuguese translations then today interest from Spanish speakers.  We are happy to work with anyone suitable in Chinese or Arabic.  Build it and they will come.

Selected Images, From Methane Monster II, Fresh News

While the full version of the slides, is linked here (287 images), for convenient viewing a selection of the top 101 is shared at link after news and updates A, B, C, and D below. Much goes on behind the scenes and more is to come.  For example, we compiled then prepared this post in September, and at the end of this year, now have reason to share them.  It is time.

Similarly, in the next few days, we will finally be sharing a compressed version of the facsimile of the ‘Methane Monster, The Demise of The Arctic‘ talk.  Just as it is a LOT easier to get your head around 100 carefully selected images–prefatory to an ultimate top 50 (not yet)–instead of all 287 of them, so it will be a LOT easier to grab eight pages of a twenty page, 22,080 word text rendered in 9 point font–prefatory to a four or five page version.

[Just as Wolfgang Wer had reason to take the gigantic task of faithfully translating this into German (2) from English (1), we are open to working with others on Arabic (3), Spanish (3), Chinese (4), Hindi (5), Urdu (6), or Japanese (6)  versions, giving us the greatest reach of the planet with the fewest major sets upon productivity, ecological impact, or population .  Please spread the word.  It can happen easily // dk].  Quickly:
———- ———-

A.  I have been invited to talk on ‘KPNN’s Unspun, An Experiment in Truth-Telling‘, for Sat January 30th at 9 am PST, with Doug Bennett.  He has interviewed the likes of Chris Hedges, Paul Ehrlich, Guy McPherson, Amy Goodman, and Derrick Jensen to name but a few.  More info to follow.

B. Kevin Hester has begun to make arrangements for New Zealand, and my talk is likely to be some time late in the week or weekend of February 11 to 14th, in Auckland.  Yet we still would be delighted to Skype Guy in since he now unfortunately cannot join us, and hope to LiveStream the Event.  As soon as we know, we will share the details.

C. Nick Burk of Relief Analysis.com has asked to interview me, following his work with Professor Paul Beckwith.  Besides being a great writer who ‘gets it’, he has an ample multicultural background spanning many continents.  Likely out to about January 16th or 23th but still getting penciled in.  We will certainly let you know once he populates this to his ReliefAnalysis at SoundCloud.  He is solid.

D. And last but not least, friend and mentor Carolyn Baker put us at the top of her Speaking Truth to Power page, for the day after Christmas, for Sat 26 Dec, 2015, shown here.
———- ———-

Here are a few of the images.  The full selection of the 101 images continues at link here.  Take the size of the below selection and multiply times fifty, duly in its own place, and that aught to give you an idea of the scope of such a selection.

Connecting the Dots: from Methane to NTHE

Jen Portrait 3

Everyone wants to know how I connected the dots. Well, not to be cliché, but here is the truth: in 2011 I was heartbroken over the loss of a relationship that I was sure would last forever. In an attempt to numb the pain and focus on something else, I felt drawn to researching climate change. The trigger for this interest in climate change, believe it or not, was actually finding a novelty mug with the map of the Earth in a gift shop in Mill Valley, California.

If you put hot water into the mug, the map of the Earth would melt away, and show the way the coastlines would change when the sea levels rose when the ice caps melted. Funny, right? Haha. 240 feet of potential sea level rise. Let’s just say I’m happy to be in Colorado at a mile high! I love researching ideas and following where they lead – it’s like sleuthing. I should have been a private eye – as a girl I loved all the Nancy Drew Mysteries, and Harriet the Spy and a Wrinkle in Time. So in 2006, having seen the result of 240 feet of sea level rise on the side of a novelty mug, I started researching the melting of the ice caps.

I would stay up until midnight most nights – good thing I work from home managing global IT teams, from India to Eastern Europe, and can go to the office in my pajamas! As part of the New Age community for most of my life, I had always felt, in some unconscious way, that we were living in some kind of pre-apocalyptic halcyon age. Like humanity was an unguided missile on the path to destruction, you might say.

I found the Arctic News and started following it religiously, and kind of became a disciple of Sam Carana, who was so clear and unflinching in his analysis and data, and drawing conclusions from them. In July, 2012 there was a story about a 20 ton tractor in Greenland ….

Connecting the Dots continues here. Jennifer Hynes – About – 2016.

Not To Be Missed: We Who Care About Climate Change


I took real note of this mention at Amazon of Kevin Lister’s book, Vortex of Violence which I have not only read, but read several times with great profit and education.  Kevin is not only a great voice, with great powers of reason, and a deep and irrevocable commitment to the most pressing needs of our time, but is my friend.  He by the way does not drive a car.  I respect him so much and those of you who know him, know how solid he is.  Without further ado, the review.  Worth a look:


Lister, Kevin, MSC: Gloucester, UK: Independent Researcher on leading activist on climate change and:

Maths Lecturer at Cirencester College. Credentials: BSc(eng), MBA, MSC (maths).
Author of “The Vortex of Violence and why we are losing the war on climate change,” which explores the linkage between international failures on climate change and nuclear weapons agreements.

His excellent webpage, blog, Kev’s Climate Column is here.  He is also well known at Facebook (his profile), and I know to pay attention to what he shares.  He never misses the mark.  Axlesoft’s great review here:

Not To Be Missed By Anyone Who Cares About Climate Change and the Planet
By Axlesoft on November 12, 2015, Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

‘I have been studying climate change since 2005, when I first became aware of feedback loops and tipping points that make the relentlessly ongoing increase of CO2 in the atmosphere especially dangerous – and not just in some distant future but within the lifespan of people living now.

‘I stumbled across a recommendation for this book in Jennifer Hynes’s excellent videos showing how abrupt climate change could result from large methane releases in the Arctic. I immediately found Mr. Lister’s book here and purchased it in e-book format for under four dollars, which was great.

‘This book, in my opinion, contains one of the clearest, most cogent explanation of climate change and the danger of abrupt change that has emerged since 2009, when the Keeling curve showed that the increase in CO2 reached a kind of inflection point. It answers numerous questions that are only roughly hinted at in most other climate change literature.

‘Chapter 2 by itself is a tour de force, very lucidly presenting a comprehensive big picture of the climate change predicament along with a riveting analysis and interpretation of the Keeling data.  The author is a math instructor in the UK who also happens to be a fine writer. He is also a thinker and a passionate advocate for clear thinking and sensible action, not just concerning climate change but also many other risks in our rapidly destabilizing world — and how these risks interact to compound the danger to the global environment.’

Methane Monster II ~ Der Untergang der Arktis

Methan Monster II ~ Der Untergang der Arktis

Methane Monster II ~ The Demise of the Arctic is now out in German.

Our excellent Facebook friend, Wolfgang Wer of Münster Germany, took it wholly upon himself to render the English into German.  He made a fantastic effort, building upon other efforts related to facsimile renditions of MM2-DOTA.


His German blog about abrupt climate change is here at Xwer.de, ‘Abrupt climate change – faster than expected.’


Wolfgang Werminghausen, geboren 1963 in Deutschland, verheiratet, 4 Kinder.

Nach Psychologiestudium und Arbeit als Psychotherapeut, habe ich einige Jahre einen Ausflug in die Finanzwelt gemacht, Entwicklung von Anlage-Strategien und langfristige Bilanz-Analysen. Mit der Erkenntnis, dass das Paradigma vom unendlichen Wachstum Illusion ist und ökologischen Schaden anrichtet, war es nur noch ein kurzer Schritt zu Guy McPhersons Thesen vom abruptem Klimawandel. Ich wollte alles zu dem Thema wissen und habe Guy auf seiner Europa Tour im April 2015 zu mir nach Münster, Deutschland eingeladen.

In Deutschland wir das Thema “abrupter Klimawandel” und “baldiges Aussterben der Menschheit” (BAM!) fast gänzlich ignoriert. Jennifers Dokumentation zeigt so detailreich und engagiert die Situation der abschmelzenden Eisschilde und der massiven Freisetzung von Methan, dass der Zuschauer in wenigen Stunden einen tiefen Einblick in die desolate Situation unseres Planeten bekommen kann, der sonst wochenlange Recherche voraussetzen würde. Diese Übersetzungsarbeit war für mich eine lange, tiefe Meditation auf die sterbende Erde, wie wir sie kennen.

Wolfgang Werminghausen: born in 1963 in Germany, married, 4 children.

‘After study of psychology and working as psychotherapist, I had a trip into the world of finance for some years, developing investment strategies and long-term analysis of accounting statements. With the insight, that the economic paradigm of infinite growth is a delusion and does harm ecologically, it was only a small step to Guy McPherson’s theses of abrupt climate change. I wanted to know all about this topic and invited Guy on his European tour to me in Münster, Germany.

In Germany, the topic of “abrupt climate change” and “near-term human extinction” is totally ignored. Jennifer Hynes’ documentation is illustrating the melting of ice sheets and massive release of methane, so that the viewer can get a deep insight into the desperate situation of our world in a few hours, that otherwise would take weeks of research. For me this translation work has been a long, deep meditation on the dying earth like we know it.’

[We further particularly encourage similar work into Chinese, Hindi, Spanish, and Arabic–giving maximum per capita-productivity impact coverage of the planet, with the least amount of data-sets.  Urdu, Portuguese, and Japanese are certainly right behind those too.  dk]

nun mit deutscher Übersetzung

/// Bitte teilen. Please share with all of your German speaking friends. ///

‘Jennifer Hynes bietet uns mit ihrer detaillierten, engagierten und sachlichen Dokumentation einen tiefen Einblick in die davonlaufenden Veränderungen der Arktis. Durch die Schmelze von Arktis, Grönland und Permafrost und durch massive Freisetzungen von Methan sind schon jetzt weltweite Veränderungen der Jetstreams und Meeresströmungen in Gang. Selbstverstärkende Feedback-Schleifen haben Kipppunkte (tipping points) überschritten und eskalieren zu einem Baldigen Aussterben in wenigen Jahrzehnten.’

Lifeboat Hour, with Carolyn Baker, Second Show


Here is the wonderful show with Carolyn Baker, from today at 2 pm EST:  ‘Lifeboat hour – 09.18.15‘.

‘Jennifer Hynes returns to the show to talk about her second piece of monumental climate research, “The Demise of The Arctic‘.

This show is about an hour long (57:27).  Thank you Carolyn.  This was, by the way, her last live show.  A great honor.  Her excellent show continues of course, but FYI this was the last live one.

Re Invite, Back to Lifeboat Hour, with Carolyn Baker


Carolyn Baker has invited me back, to join her this Friday morning, September 18th, 2015, as her guest again on Lifeboat Hour.  This is on PRN, Progressive Radio Network.

That is at noon MST here in Colorado, two pm EST or New York, seven pm GMT or London, 11 am PST.  And given the number of fans in Australia and New Zealand, that’s four am Sydney, and six am Auckland.   Bright and early.

Denizens of doom and cognoscenti already know this show came from the deceased Michael C. Ruppert, but newer adopters of our perspective might like to know that he was a powerful researcher who hosted this show, only to take take his own life before his last broadcast in early 2014, stunning us all.  So Carolyn continues here with great imprimatur.  You can bet on it.

If his video Apocalypse, Man: Michael C. Ruppert on World’s End (Part 1) does not make your hair stand on end, then nothing will.  You can also see ‘Former LA Police Officer Mike Ruppert Confronts CIA Director John Deutch on Drug Trafficking‘, Abby Martin’s Personal Tribute to Investigative Journalist Michael C. Ruppert‘, and ‘The Truth and Lies of 9-11‘ here.  This man is no fool.  So Carolyn stands in a deep, irrevocable tradition.   And now I join here there.  While material and force, shape and nature matters, the heart matters even more.

This is the same network, which also has best selling author and physicist Michio Kaku’s Exploration, nutritionist extraordinaire–The Gary Null Show, polymathic Derrick Jensen’s Resistance Radio and, as if that were not enough, Dr. Guy McPherson’s Nature Bats Last podcast version.  Can you imagine?

And before saying goodbye for the moment, Carolyn has made many of her podcasts available, and as she says at her ‘Speaking Truth to Power website’:

It is my goal in the coming year to produce extensive audio segments of vital information regarding emotional and spiritual preparation for the collapse of industrial civilization. These will include far more than just information and will offer you the opportunity to utilize many of the experiential exercises provided in my live workshops.’

As you may recall, we had a wonderful session, back in Friday, July 3rd, The podcast replay is here.
