KMO welcomes Jay Smith back to the C-Realm to discuss his impressions of the 2013 Age of Limits conference. Many repeat C-Realm Podcast guests were in attendance at the conference, and while they all have reputations as being "doomers" of one stripe or another, none are paint quite as grim a picture of the near-term future as Guy McPherson who is predicting the extinction of the human species before the end of the 21st Century. KMO and Jay talk about the allure of doomsday forecasting. Later, KMO reads and responds to a short essay by a C-Realm listener and talks about his upcoming couch-surfing tour.
