You may be thinking, “What a weird title for a podcast. Methane? Buddhism? New consciousness?”
In a nutshell, that’s the essence of this week’s inspiring guest. Jennifer Hynes is a climate researcher and the creator of two significant climate change videos addressing escalating climate trends. In particular, her focus has been on the methane hydrate situation in the Arctic.
As a highly trained IT professional with an emphasis on large data migrations and data trends analysis, she has a passion for connecting the dots of the climate world, and spreading awareness of the looming climate catastrophe.
Jennifer also has a deep and abiding interested in Tibetan Buddhism. Growing up in Laos and Ghana, she learned the intrinsic value of being internally guided and spiritually connected at a young age.
While she’s not a formally trained climate scientist, her first video, “The Arctic Methane Monster’s Rapid Rise” was widely viewed and went viral. Her second video, “Methane Monster II: Demise of the Arctic” has also garnered considerable attention.
Jennifer’s awakening to the dire reality of our climate situation is a fascinating story—one which we explore in great depth on the show. She’s a gifted storyteller whose passion for life is palpable!
This week, we discuss topics such as:
- Intuition and spiritual pursuits.
- The power of vulnerability to create connection.
- The importance of like-minded community to navigate abrupt climate-change awareness.
- How the melting Arctic affects us all.
- Speaking out: the path of the warrior.
- How authenticity and clear-thinking empower a message.
- What is a pioneer in consciousness?
- How despair is not a state of the heart (and why it’s important to allow it to move).
- How emotion and passion moves us far more than scientific information.
- Why we should be concerned about methane.
- How the human mind is conditioned to normalize the abnormal to preserve the status quo.
- What is the “hot blob” and the “ridiculously resilient ridge”?
- Living with the knowledge of near-term human extinction.
- The myths of grief.
- How gratitude and joy walk hand-in-hand.
- The liberation of acceptance.
Jennifer is passionate, warm, smart and funny. I’m grateful to have her in my life and I suspect you will too after listening to this inspiring conversation.
