Climate change anyone?

Love the dumb newsreader who never knew CO2 levels had been high in the past. No doubt levels have changed over millennia but it's the speed of change which does not allow species to evolve or adapt. Combine this with how we have harmed the environment in other ways it does not give many species much chance hence we have so many extinctions taking place now. 

 

 Not sure what the point of posting the video is. The scientist agrees with the "good scientists" who measure data that must include our current period of rapid warming which we are having without any other natural catastrophic events (volcanoes, meteorites) other than us. If that's all Fox News can find in the deniers camp you have to presume global warming is worse than thought.

The single line of text appearing in your quote, is my exact point, other than that I have zero time for Fox's so-called news, they really  should stick to making peppermint sweets.

Like the breast-beating bereavement "cult" after Princess Diana's death, and indeed perhaps the hysteria after Madaline McCann's disappearance/death.

And other such media-fostered over-reactions.

When, in the best Fascist fashion, any voices daring to dissent are stridently/hysterically suppressed.

Difficult one this. 

Dutch Elm disease - end of the woods! 

Nuclear hydrogen bombs- nuclear winter! 

GM wheat- collapse of the food chain! 

Niconitoide herbicides - end of the bees! 

 

But I look out of my window and it's fine. And was everytime there's shouts of end of days. This biblical bollocks just ain't enough. K

 

( an not been hording marmite cos Brexit either....)

I am not sure if I linked the video(and do we still say that?) that I came across on YouTube, postulating that the current hysteria regarding Global Warming/Cooling/cant-quite-decide/lets-call-it/Climate Change, was merely the latest manifestation of the "we are doomed/the world ends tomorrow" sandwich board shit that has been plaguing mankind since recorded history began.

I would tend to believe such a postulation.

Am sure there is a lot of well-meaning but attention-seeking in all of this. Problems beset you in life but squealing abt every issue you can read online abt ain't enuff. Deal with what you can make a difference in. K

I understand that Virtue signalling about such "big" matters is so much more popular than sorting out ones own dysfunctional life, lovelife or finances.

My thoughts exactly. With the general decline in religiosity, people still have a built-in need to fear an apocalyptic "something", it's been in our genes for hundreds of thousands of years. And something to feel guilty about as well. Add it to the long long list of failed predictions. of doom..
