EXTINCTION DIALOGS: HOW TO LIVE WITH DEATH IN MIND
Steve Pleich, host of Voices From The Village, talks with three experts in their fields about the realities of climate crisis. Dr. Carol Stoker: Planetary Scientist, NASA/Ames, Joe Jordan: Renewable Energy Cabrillo, Former NASA/Ames & SETI Inst., Dr. Rick Nolthenius: Planetary Sciences, Cabrillo College, Astronomy/Astrophysics Chair, Dr. Guy McPherson: Conservation Biologist, Prof Emeritus, Univ. Arizona.
Extinction Dialogs: How to Live with Death in Mind is a candid conversation between Guy McPherson and Carolyn Baker. The text addresses the scientific research regarding abrupt climate change as well as how humans who grasp the likelihood of near-term human extinction can prepare emotionally and spiritually for the demise of many species on Earth, including ours. Synthesizing scientific and psycho-spiritual perspectives, McPherson and Baker provide a manual for understanding our terminal status and therefore allow this knowledge to shape every aspect of our relationships and behavior in humanity's last hours.

She is the author of Collapsing Consciously: Transformative Truths For Turbulent Times, Navigating The Coming Chaos: A Handbook For Inner Transition (2011) and Sacred Demise: Walking The Spiritual Path Of Industrial Civilization’s Collapse (2009).
