This is the third conversation in our series on near term human extinction: the most disturbing group of interviews in the history of Radio Curious. In this interview with Dr. Carolyn Baker, as we’re faced with a grim future for the human species on earth, we consider the role of hospice for all of us and for our planet.

This is the third conversation in our series on near-term human extinction, which Barry has called the most disturbing group of interviews he's had in the history of Radio Curious. On today's program, we'll consider how we can each personally deal with this impossible problem, and how an understanding of hospice can help guide the way we interact with our communities and our planet.

Our guest is Dr. Carolyn Baker, co-author with Dr. Guy R. McPherson of "Extinction Dialogues: How to Live with Death in Mind." She's also the author of "Love in the Age of Ecological Apocalypse: Cultivating the Relationships We Need to Thrive." As an author and psychotherapist, Dr. Baker discusses the importance of emotional and spiritual preparedness for the cataclysmic changes that abrupt climate change will bring.

As you listen to this interview, consider how you could incorporate Dr. Baker's advice into your own life, and how the hospice concept--taking time to interact with loved ones, enjoy nature, and be mindful--can give meaning to your time on earth, in the face of human extinction.

"Extinction Dialogs" presents credible scientific evidence that global warming is pushing our planet to a swift apocalyptic end--more rapidly that we comprehend. Dr. Guy McPherson discusses the scientific evidence that suggests a looming extinction of the human species in parts one and two of this series. In the second half of "Extinction Dialogs," Dr. Baker encourages and recommends a hospice approach, which we present to you as part three in this series.

The book Dr. Baker recommends is "Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, by Stephen Jenkinson." This interview was recorded on September 20, 2015.
