We don’t need rowdy Extinction Hellions on our streets – we need Education on Extinctions in our science academies, classrooms and media.

Extinctions are natural events that close every chapter of Earth’s history – they remove species that can’t cope with competition or change. Better adapted species take their place.

The rocks are Earth’s archives, recording past climates, extinctions, ice ages, droughts, planetary impacts and volcanic activities.

There is NOTHING unusual about current conditions or trends except for today’s huge human population. (Dinosaurs also were very numerous and successful, but only remnants of their line remain today.)

Saving the planet with mime. Why the hell didn’t we think of this earlier. Maybe the Tasmanian tiger would be still with us.

There are at least 17 major extinctions recorded in Earth’s archives. They are revealed by discontinuities in surface outcrops, and in drill logs and core samples taken from deep drilling, sea sediment sampling, lake strata, tree rings, stalactite rings and ice cores.

There is zero evidence in Earth’s archives of an extinction event caused by high levels of carbon dioxide or by gradual global warming.

In fact, we see the reverse – warm eras like the modern warming are followed closely by higher levels of carbon dioxide, which encourages plants and supports abundant life on Earth.

 Past extinctions were caused by meteor impacts, earth movements, geomagnetic reversals, volcanism, tidal waves and changing sea levels. Most eras are closed by life-extinguishing ice ages.

Wait a minute! I saw that documentary….

Increasing ice is the big thing we have to fear. This is always followed by declining levels of the gases of life (carbon dioxide and water vapour) in the atmosphere. This twin disaster will herald widespread starvation of all plants and animals on Earth.

The planet’s archives will then record one more Extinction Event.

Dear all,
I recently found a link in the comments section to a meeting in the US (i think) where a woman who was totally unhinged was tearing into a man for being a white male. The link i have now says that this video is private. Does anyone have a link to this clip. If so, could you please leave it in a reply to this comment. Thanks

Watched the Channel 7 news last night and the Meteorologist/Weather presenter Jane Bunn. I now know where our water is going. She uses it to wash her bras

How they think – Climate Crisis Denier’s Are Emperors who Wear No Clothes by Irwin Jerome https://countercurrents.org/2019/10/climate-crisis-deniers-are-emperors-who-wear-no-clothes Without massive, radically-adaptive, immediate changes to human society there is little hope of ever avoiding either the coming biospheric or nuclear holocaust that’s all but a surety. In October 2019, approximately 7.5 million humans, world-wide, led by the Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg’s Fridays for Future International Movement, marched in protest of the human-caused climate crisis that is contributing to the Anthropocene Epoch’s sixth greatest mass extinction of species in the history of the planet. Other activists, like those in the Extinction Rebellion Movement,… Read more »
