Bummer: World To End In 2025, Globull Warming Involved

We’re doooooooooooooooooooooomed. Or something. It’s another in a long line of tipping points that never seem to actual happen

(Science Agogo) Based on an evaluation of more than 1,000 previous studies, a new meta-review by an international group of 18 scientists suggests the Earth is perilously close to a tipping point where resource consumption, ecosystem degradation, climate change, biodiversity loss and population growth will trigger massive changes in the biosphere.

“The last tipping point in Earth’s history occurred about 12,000 years ago when the planet went from being in the age of glaciers, which previously lasted 100,000 years, to being in its current interglacial state. Once that tipping point was reached, the most extreme biological changes leading to our current state occurred within only 1,000 years. That’s like going from a baby to an adult state in less than a year,” explains Arne Mooers, professor of biodiversity at Simon Fraser University and one of the paper’s authors. “Importantly, the planet is changing even faster now. The odds are very high that the next global state change will be extremely disruptive to our civilization.”

And the ultimate answer to stop yet another pronouncement of doom?

Mooers is more blunt, saying that “society globally has to collectively decide that we need to drastically lower our population very quickly. More of us need to move to optimal areas at higher density and let parts of the planet recover. Folks like us [developed nations] have to be forced to be materially poorer, at least in the short term. We also need to invest a lot more in creating technologies to produce and distribute food without eating up more land and wild species. It’s a very tall order,” he concludes.

There you go: population reduction. For other people, of course. Everyone move to cities. How dare any of you live in the countryside communing with nature. Being forced to live in squalid 10th century conditions.

    I hate when these wimpy moderates won’t follow their logic to the end. Population reduction? Hah! If they truly wanted to save Holy Mother Gaia, they’d call for voluntary human extinction.

  2. Yeah, but remember, it is always Someone Else who has to pay the piper for their unhinged beliefs. Just like with taxes. Liberals think tax increases are great. For someone else.

    Phew! Everyobody buy an SUV and turn on the central air! The way the markets are going and our government is spending, and with retirement in about 7 years, I will only have enough to live on till 2025…so this is okay by me.

    Oh, and by the way Arne, the earth has hit tipping points before without any human intervention, is absolutely going to do it again, and no one is going to stop her once she decides to go. Reducing the population has nothing to do with the course the earth will take. It has everything to do with the religion of Global Warming/Climate change…the selfish, egotistical, self deluded, crazy as bats AGW crowd.

    But, we can’t use genetically modified foods. THAT would be wrong.

    So, by their own logic, we need to reduce population.

    They can lead the way.

    Beware the Global Isothermal Scare of 2014.
    And especially the Global Stampeding of the Ignorant in 2022.

  7. Ah, you forget, Cargosquid, they expect Everyone Else to bear the burden for their beliefs. Meanwhile, Warmists will live high “carbon” lives.
