I wanted to share this in posterity to remember Mike’s graciousness and commitment to new media like ours and gifted writers like Christopher, who we hope to see posting again soon.

I was in El Paso when this aired after visiting with Dr. Guy McPherson in New Mexico and doing some media work with Blazing Kat Productions, who were producing episodes of the show OWS Week. Occupy is how I met Mike, so the timing seemed very kismet.  I thank Christopher Weller for his work and commitment to providing spiritual refreshment for our readers over the years.

*Just realized in this installment Mike shares the song, “Calling All Angels” by Jane Siberry and KD Lang. The same song he shared on his last show before he shed this mortal coil. Crazy eclipse, man. ~ Gabrielle Price

In memoriam: Michael C. Ruppert

Richard Heinberg (Post Carbon Institute):

Just three weeks ago I saw Mike for the first time in four years. We talked at a restaurant; then, a couple of days later, I was a guest on his Lifeboat Hour radio show. He had clearly been to hell and back since we last saw each other, but appeared to have come to a better place within himself. He had a couple of big projects on the horizon and gave no hint of the end that he would choose. During the past decade he alerted many thousands of people to the precarious nature of our global, fossil-fueled industrial system, and many of those folks changed their careers or moved to another location in search of more resilience and sustainability. That’s a legacy that deserves enduring thanks.
