APOCALYPSE NOW?

You can rely on the BBC to provide a platform to those who push the AGW agenda and the more extreme the scale of this, the greater the platform!

What are the greatest global threats to humanity? Are we on the verge of our own unexpected extinction? An international team of scientists, mathematicians and philosophers at Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute is investigating the biggest dangers. And they argue in a research paper, Existential Risk as a Global Priority, that international policymakers must pay serious attention to the reality of species-obliterating risks. Last year there were more academic papers published on snowboarding than human extinction. The Swedish-born director of the institute, Nick Bostrom, says the stakes couldn’t be higher. If we get it wrong, this could be humanity’s final century.

Incredible stuff, detached from any fact based science but dressed up in the doomsday rhetoric of the global warmers.

    A new form of terrorism, Climate extremists. Arrest them under the anti terrorism laws.

      I have some sympathy for abstract mathematicians, as well as philosophers.

      It must be galling to see Climate Change shysters with dubious degrees in Environmentalism, hog the limelight, and awarded rolling research grants. As research income means academic promotion and chairs, the academic lightweights of climate change have got the promotions, while serious philosophers and Lie algebra theoreticians are still on a lecturer scale.

      Life – its just not fair.

        The “serious” academics have realized at last, that the only way to get on the gravy train, is to come up with some really big scare.

        I mean really BIG SCARE. So this venture into a new Scare game.

        What the academics miss is, that it is pointless to scare the people. They need to come with serious statistical data ( you know the kind in which the science is settled), which shows that unless action is taken NOW, politicians will become extinct in a very gruesome manner. It will be the end of the world as we know it.

          It is a self supporting system. Scares get reported without thought, that creates public interest, which the government thinks it has to respond to which often means those who started the scare get more funding and so the mess goes on.

    All this Global Warming/Climate Change/anti Carbon Dioxide nonsense is about to be swept aside by events.

    Wonky Willy Haig, Thick as a Brick Barry and Baroness Trash Face have stirred up a very large hornet’s nest two thousand miles away in the Ukraine. Fascist rioters have taken over and have tried to stop 50% of the population there speaking their own Russian language. They are now threatening nuclear war against and yet owe billions of Roubles to Russia. President Putin is not amused and will not be bullied by the Wets of the West. Not a good way to keep a climate cool.

    APOCALYPSE NOW? Very probably. In fact, I’d say the Earth’s atmosphere is about to get very much warmer, with a very large amount of extra CO2 about to be released. I just hope our dozy plonkers in parliament don’t think it is in any way our business and keep their heads down. But I won’t hold my breath.

    Often feel that these chicken lickers are just “End of the World” types that I used to see whilst heading to the football.
    I sense their mums won`t let them go and stand by the grounds anymore- maybe get a chill, or maybe some restrictions in regard of where they can go , post Savile and Harman.
    Maybe they don`t want to carry a big sandwich board due to health and safety, maybe a hernia in the future…denuding Gaia of a sheet of virgin cardboard is an environmental crime perhaps?
    Or…a word like “Apocalypse” is a bit tricky for them, only having a degree in environmental surf studies, not in Inglish innit?

    Just think, for all the trillions that governments are pissing up the wall on the ‘mitigating actions against climate change’ (aka Agenda 21) we could design and build a comprehensive asteroid defence system (headed up by Bruce Willis, of course).

    Today the Global population is at its highest ever level, and still increasing.

    So god help us, if the Global population stopped increasing because of starvation due to EU policies such as subsidising dickey birds and butterflies, instead of farmers and agriculture.

    Did the BBC report this week that the co-founder of Greenpeace, Patrick Moore, said before a Senate Committee that there is no evidence whatsoever for man-made global warming? No? How surprising…

    “If we get it wrong, this could be humanity’s final century.”

    Typically flawed Oxford logic. This could be humanity’s final century whether we get it right or wrong. But then again, maybe it won’t be. Still, good excuse to bung some more cash at pointless research projects.

    I heard a wonderful comment the other day, I wish I had been paying more attention because I can’t recall who made it. The person pointed out the simple fact that Global Warming would in all probability be of great benefit to humans who did, after all, originate as a tropical species.

    As a retort to the over the top scare mongering from certain self-interest scientific AGW Propagandists would suggest a misquote from Mark Twain, “Reports of humanities impending demise are being grossly exaggerated.”
    I have little doubt that humanity, like all species other than the most basic of basic forms, will eventually become extinct. But not for the next several millennia and it certainly won’t be prevented by some fantasist scientists claiming they can alter natural global events by preventing people from rubbing two sticks together to set some coal on fire to keep themselves warm until the earth finally returns to the temperatures it was at before the last ice ages.

      Its been known fpr sometime, that a planet 1 ro 2 C warmer, will release vast amounts of land in Russia, but now under permafrost. Nor just that, less cold means less use of fossil fuels to keep war. As a side benefit, winds will be more prevalent, thus wind turbines may actually be of more use then very little.
