“This is a holy shit moment.” “It’s not ‘holy shit’; it’s worse than that.” Preview of HBO ‘Vice: Our Rising Oceans with Eric Rignot‘.  Then he says, “We are not ready for this” Below is image, not video:


Go to the 20:29 mark, video here:

[It was very] hard to find the clip of his saying this, as HBO has a significant investment in unique content.  Here are some leads:

Abrupt Climate Change 2015 information * Scientists * Guy McPherson * Paul Beckwith etc, is one.  Its bone chilling.  Below is an image, not a video (link to video at left): [editor, Mon_18-Oct-2015:  we are deeply saddened to see this link broken.  Understanding the force of large markets as WE do, HBO is a big force.  They invest much.  Link is now gone….. an hour of searching, then wonderously found, now gone 23 days latter.  No blame but no remedy–yet.  dk

Thur_19-Nov-2015 Marc Haneburght remedied the situation.  Fantastic find.  Thank you Marc!  dk]


Eric is also well shown here in two excellent videos:

Third one gets better–2:40 mark, ‘We are seeing that today, in several parts of Antarctica and Greenland. But it’s a little bit shattering to say, ‘HEY: THIS IS IT’. Even for the scientist looking at it, it’s kind of a big step to say ‘I THINK THIS PLACE IS FALLING APART’:

Interview: polar ice expert, ‘Professor Peter Wadhams: The Arctic, Paris & Politicians’ // Published on Sep 22, 2015

Fellow is down the hall, at Cambridge University, from Brief History of Time fame, Dr. Steven Hawking:

‘For more information please visit

‘Interview: Polar ice expert, Professor Peter Wadhams, discusses the increased dangers of climate change in the Arctic, the potential for runaway impacts and what politicians should decide when they meet in Paris

‘With the recent Arctic sea ice minimum extent for 2015 announced on the 11th September showing the 4th lowest sea ice extent on record. Little comfort can be drawn from US Navy data that shows the sea ice thickness (not visible from satellites) is still declining, especially around the Beaufort Sea and the North Pole, where increased storm activity is further breaking up the ice.

‘Professor Peter Wadhams is about to leave on an expedition to the Arctic and explains the risk posed to the rest of the world by changes accelerating in the polar regions, as well as the one thing politicians could do that would start the ball rolling towards a more sustainable future.’

MOST SERIOUS PERHAPS OF ALL VOICES, FOR LAST: Guy McPherson – Earth Extinction 2030 // Published on Nov 15, 2013

Guy McPherson discusses his latest book Going Dark.

‘We are the last individuals of our species on Earth. How shall we respond? How shall we act? If industrial civilization is maintained, climate change will cause human extinction in the near term. If industrial civilization falls, sufficient ionizing radiation will be released from the world’s nuclear power plants to cause human extinction in the near term. In the wake of this horrific conclusion, conservation biologist McPherson proposes we act with compassion, courage, and creativity.

‘He suggests we act with the kind of empathy for which humans are renowned. In other words, he suggests we act with decency toward the humans and other organisms with which we share this beautiful planet. Going Dark is the story of one scientist’s response to the horrors we face. It is a deeply personal narrative infused with abundant evidence to support its terrifying claims.

‘Going Dark peels the shadow from the cosy dreams we’ve all bought into — that technology will save us from climate change; that the products we consume are endless and untainted; that our modern idea of happiness and convenience doesn’t crush others; that the heartbeat of the industrial economy that pulses within us is sustainable and ethical. McPherson’s latest work will make you think twice.’
