“…a child born today will live through a world that is over 4°C warmer, with a changing environment threatening the food they eat, the air they breath, and the communities they grow up in.”

The quote is WRONG, right off the bat. We will be dead at 3 degrees as most life left will be and guess what folk’s, we are at 2 degrees now. Time has run out!

not to mention the antibiotic resistant ‘bugs’ already appearing that will only start to multiply

“But bacteria are evolving at a rate that we are not keeping up with.”

I know. Why I started practicing martial arts in 1973.

So the writing is on the wall for the progressive agenda… just allow unabated abortion to help avert the crisis of a “child’s survival” from repeated, historical change, in the earth’s climate.

You chose your handle well, Defy.

You defy the confines of rationality.

There are many issues to address worldwide and there are dark times ahead. That’s now unavoidable. How bad things get can help be determined now, and the sooner the better. World population and the excess of humanity is something that needs serious attention. Peace

Yes. 4C is terminal and 3C is a really nasty maybe. Think of how a human body handles excess temperature. 37C = 98.6 or add 4C =41C = 105.8F. Two weeks of that is lethal. Go to 5C - 42C = 107.6F. Think of Earth in those terms. We are already over 100F now 1C =100.4F , in human terms.

Don’t worry. The rich will live in the finest bunkers.

No worries there, the rough equivalent of abortions will soon be naturally occurring, as hunger, disease, war, and unchecked violence leave few survivors alive who are too frail to fend for themselves. The population is reaching a point where it will collapse under these and other exponentially mounting pressures. The concept of civilization itself will pass from memory, and the niceties of the modern world will no longer be a reality: clean drinkable water, transportation, big agriculture and the transportation industry it depends on, the electric grid, communications, supermarkets and grocery stores, the very infrastructure and organization that make civilization possible all will be gone. That is and has been our vote, our choice, and at this point I doubt there’s any realistic possibility of turning it back or even slowing the process. It falls well short of the horrors we all deserve, I’m afraid. The unwillingness to defend ourselves and our families has its just rewards.

But with Putin’s Russia entirely dependent on oil and the the fact that the Saudis, Iran, Iraq all make billions selling oil…humans are destined to destroy all life on the planet. All oil and gas fired power plants would have to be replaced by nuclear fission reactors. People would have to live in homes, 4X as small as they now have. No more incandescent light bulbs…and animals flatulating…mostly beef cattle. No more gas powered vehicles. Humanity must make these big changes but with the governments of the world opposing action or doing little to nothing, humans will die a slow horrible extinction and everything we have ever done or worked for will not matter one bit.

Codswallop. How did our ancestors ever survive the previous Ice age?
