Dahr Jamail got his genuinely well researched and written book out the door in January this year. Here's what I just copied from an article about it: "A superb journalist, in the most honorable tradition of that craft." Howard Zinn

After nearly a decade overseas as a war reporter, the acclaimed journalist Dahr Jamail returned to America to renew his passion for mountaineering, only to find that the slopes he had once climbed have been irrevocably changed by climate disruption. In response, Jamail embarks on a journey to the geographical front lines of this crisisfrom Alaska to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, via the Amazon rainforestin order to discover the consequences to nature and to humans of the loss of ice.

This interview with Derrick Jensen, a long-time environmentalist in his own right, does a 50 minute interview here with Dahr. I had to turn it off a bit past the middle, before resting and going back to it. I've heard most before, but Dahr is a phenomenal speaker and gives frightfully clear examples. My suggestion is watch as much as you can handle (assuming you even want to), and skip to about 40 minutes in, where Jamail offers some superb wisdom from Native Americans. If you haven't gone through the stages of grief for the earth and its creatures, be forewarned, this may send you on the way. Only by getting to acceptance have I been able to think at least moderately clearly on how to live in what I can only call the End-of-Scene. Yes, we should have gotten along with the first human inhabitants of North and South America from the start, but better late than never for listening.

If you've read or heard nothing else on the collapse of the biosphere and the truth of "where we are today," this is all you need to hear, imo.

P.S. This is yet one more reason why I continue to advocate for Tulsi; she is the only one I see who appears ready to go on day one to get countries of the world working together. In one interview I saw, she was asked what she would do about climate change, her reply was (paraphrased): "I'd get help from the world's leading climatologists." They may well point out the things Dahr does here, but if we're going out, I want to do it in the most humane way we possibly can--behaving as we should have been for at least the past 100 years, when bona fide scientists and countless other thinking humans were explaining things that we failed to listen to or act upon.

My wife and I enjoyed Dahr J's company when he came to give

a report on Iraq at our UU church in Belfast. We were with a

small group and a couple from Friends Service Committee whom

we put up when they returned from Baghdad.

Brilliant!!! ...and scary.

I listened to the whole thing and must say that I much prefer Jamail's attitude to Guy McPherson's.

Yes!!! Tulsi is our only hope. I cannot believe she is still polling at 1% on Real Clear Politics, suspecting (hoping) that RCP is part of the lying prestitute media.

She came in at 45% on Drudge; even The Hill noted the MSM disappearance of her. Jarmal Thomas (I think) showed how she didn't even show up in one major poll. The polls are an absolute joke, except they aren't funny.

I am late to the show but I did just watch the entire video with Dahr Jamail. He is very good and speaks very clearly.

Daniel, like you, I have accepted the inescapable conclusion.

Do listen to the link I posted with Marianne Williamson and some interviewer I don't know the name of. You will be pleased you did, I guarantee it!
