Guy R. McPherson is an American scientist, professor emeritus of natural resources and ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Arizona. He is best known for promoting the idea of near term extinction (NTE), a term he coined about the possibility of human extinction as soon as 2030.
In May 2009, McPherson began transitioning to living on an off-grid homestead in southern New Mexico. McPherson authors a blog called “Nature Bats Last”, that focuses on global climate change, energy decline and the possibility of imminent human extinction due to the increasing accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. On November 1, 2015, McPherson was interviewed on National Geographic Explorer with host Bill Nye. Regarding his NTE views, Andrew Revkin in The New York Times said McPherson was an “apocalyptic ecologist.
Jackson Madnick, founder and President of Pearl’s Premium Lawn Seed, spent his retirement money to develop a combination of lawn seeds which would “give more than they take” back to the environment. After some 7+ years of intense experimentation and R&D, he and his team of agricultural experts from across the country, identified a particular combination of seeds that grow very slowly, very deeply, don’t use chemicals for maintaining an awesomely green lawn. And use almost no water. These lawns’ sequester 8-10X times the carbon of an ordinary lawn so anyone who uses this lawn seed is doing something significant in reducing the carbon footprint. It is in almost 050,000 lawns across the country.
