Bearing Witness To The Great Dying, By Kenn Orphan

Skull

We are all witnesses to the Great Dying, a sixth mass extinction, the last one being 65 million years ago which wiped out the dinosaurs. This is not hyperbole; it is a defining feature of our age.

Grieving Could Offer A Pathway Out Of A Destructive Economic System, By Joe Confino

Grief 2

“Many indigenous peoples have a pact with mother Earth that said we would hold on to the principles of thriving life, and that one day the world would turn back and come to us again,” she says. “To be ready for that, we must also go through our grief in order to truly be able to come back into alignment of our mind, body and spirit.”

Earth Changes: Eruptions, Adjustments, And Love, By Jack Adam Weber

Earth Full

When hope is used to reject reality, this is called denial, and denial usually has a darker side than the (fertile and therefore rejuvenating) darkness it initially resisted. When we accept the dark and difficult side of side of life, the experiences that are not rosy and peaceful, we give ourselves an opportunity to undergo transformation, a transformation that can deliver us in earnest to a new level of fulfillment, integration, and therefore healing.

Ebola A Symptom Of Ecological And Social Collapse, By Glen Barry

Bat

The single greatest truth underlying the Ebola tragedy is that humanity is systematically dismantling the ecosystems that make Earth habitable.

Uncharted Territory For A System In Overshoot, By Mary Odum

Population

We are in uncharted territory with the Ebola virus disease (EVD). The last time we had a plague that was this deadly was the Black Death in the 14th century, when there were only 450 million people in the world. That pandemic killed 30% to 70% of the population. There is no benchmark for EVD, which kills 3 out of 4 people it touches, and is emerging into a global population of 7 billion.

Shifting The Psychology of Climate Change Denial, By Dr. Craig Chalquist

Accepting That We Can’t Get There From Here: A Meditation, By Dave Pollard

Mushrooms

So I am starting to accept that I can’t get there (to being-something-else) from here, and that we can’t get there (to a world not plunged headlong into the sixth great extinction of life) from here. To accept it, and to appreciate it. To stop fighting it. To just be who I inevitably am, in this world that is as it inevitably is, here, now.

Practical Dreaming In The Hopeful Light Of Earthrise, By Craig Chalquist

Earth from space

Our time is one of apocalypse, an archetype found in the lore and myth of many times and peoples. As we face crises of ecology, economy, religion, politics, finance, education, agriculture, housing, water, air, and soil, as Earth overheats, species go extinct, and the air-giving oceans die on every side, we wonder how to make sense of it all, or indeed whether it’s even possible to. “It’s all a question of story,” wrote “geologian” Thomas Berry, priest and environmentalist, as things began to slide downhill. “We are in trouble just because we do not have a good story. We are between stories. The old story, the account of how we fit into it, is no longer effective. Yet we have not learned the new story.”

How The Current Mass Extinction Of Animals Threatens Humans, By Simon Worrall

Elephants

We seem indifferent to the mass extinction we’re causing, yet we lose a part of ourselves when another animal dies out.

Beware Of The Dragon Of Runaway Climate Change, By Julian Cribb

Dragon

However, like goggling tsunami onlookers, the world’s governments and most of its citizens seem oblivious to the magnitude of the risk. People sometimes even complain they “don’t want to hear any more bad news”, as if not hearing it somehow prevents it from happening.
