PROF. DR. GUY R. MCPHERSON
CONSERVATION BIOLOGIST, SOCIAL CRITIC,
THOUGHT LEADER, EXPERT WITNESS
Guy McPherson is an energetic speaker and talented moderator. He has appeared before countless audiences to speak about the two primary consequences of our fossil-fuel addiction: global climate change and energy decline. Because these phenomena impact every aspect of life on Earth, his talks reach a wide variety of audiences such as universities, associations, nonprofits, and numerous educational and scientific symposia and conferences.
Selected presentations are available at McPherson’s YouTube channel or, more recently,
Nature Bats Last’s YouTube channel, but each presentation is uniquely prepared for the specific audience.
Guy is professor emeritus of natural resources and the environment at the University of Arizona, where he taught and conducted research for twenty award-winning years. His scholarly work, which has for many years focused on conservation of biological diversity, has produced 14 books and more than 100 articles. He lives in an off-grid, straw-bale house where he puts into practice his lifelong interest in sustainable living via organic gardening, raising small animals for eggs and milk, and working with members of his rural community.
Guy developed a comprehensive set of durable living arrangements in response to the ongoing collapse of the industrial economy and global climate change. He shares property in a rural area developed specifically to provide abundant supplies of food and water as well as maintaining comfortable body temperature in the absence of fossil fuels. He is available for consultation if you are serious about doing the same.
Because the topics of his presentations often induce despair and grief, Guy became a certified grief-recovery specialist in January 2014. The certification came from The Grief Recovery Institute.
