Moonbat Alert

Professor Peter Barnett thinks that the human race will cease to exist by the end of the century:

40 years, I’m part of a huge community of scientists who have become
alarmed with our discovery, that we know from our knowledge of the
ancient past, that if we continue our present growth path, we are
facing extinction," Barrett said. "Not in millions of years, or even
millennia, but by the end of this century."

Um, Pete, how about providing some proof, rather relying on your feelings? Is global warming a reality that has long term implications? Some say yes, some say no. I will believe it when I am provided with long term proof. So far all I have seen is information that supports short term warming trends, which tend to be localized. Nothing long range, nor that can trully be said to be considerably more damaging then standard cyclical Earth adjustments. Give me the hard proof, and I will believe it, no matter what party you are from. But these kinds of exagerations without proof, from Professor Barnett, are the types of comments that get environmentalists written off as nuts.

And, yes, this was found at the DU. Some choice comments:

  • Republicans will be fine because nothing can kill off the world’s…cockroach population.
  • Gloom and doomers are everywhere. It gets attention and grants.I agree that we
    should work to clean up and preserve the environment, but running
    around like Chicken Little all the time saying ‘the sky is falling’
    just means that people tune you out.The average person can’t do
    much about an international problem, and Bush is in for another 4
    years, so it’s either suicide, or ignore it.The world has been
    going to end every year that I can remember, and I’m pushing 60, and
    most of the problems that were going to cause it have disappeared. The last thing people need right now is more scare tactics, or fear over something they have no control over. Practical local action plans would be much more useful.
  • There are no gloom and doomers. That’s grossly unfair. The last thing people need is to put their head in the sand.Have a look before you judge.This isn’t about manipulating emotions. (bullshat)
  • and the world would be a better place if in 2012 we already had the right woman running the oval office
  • Our luck she would be a big-haired, Maggie Thatcher type…with Bible thumping, bomb throwing, New World Order ways.

Tame for the DU, but you can just "feel" the insanity wanting to start. Actually, I think the second one is a bit underdone. We cannot get overly crazy about environmentalism, but neither should we ignore it or minimize it.
