The video clips embedded below represent a typical recent presentation. Lately, I’m reminded of these words from philosopher Søren Kierkegaard when I deliver a presentation: “A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. The clown came out to warn the public; they thought it was a joke and applauded. He repeated it; the acclaim was even greater. I think that’s just how the world will come to an end: to general applause from those who believe it’s just a joke.”

The first video clip embedded below was delivered in Petone, New Zealand, a suburb of the capital city of Wellington, on 6 July 2012. The second video is the Q&A portion of the show. I apologize for my head cold and the resultant coughing and other obnoxious sounds emanating from me.

• Professor Guy McPherson is is an emeritus professor at the University of Arizona School of Natural Resources, but he gave up his university post on ethical grounds to devote himself to building a Lifeboat and lecturing/educating on the collapse that faces us and is one of the key people in the Peak Oil and the Transition/Lifeboat movement.
