A scientist is predicting that due to humanity’s impact on the climate, the human race will itself go extinct within 10 years.
“I can’t imagine there will be a human on the planet in 10 years,” a professor of biology at the University of Arizona, Guy McPherson, said during an interview in New Zealand. “We’re headed for a temperature within that span that is at or near the highest temperature experienced on earth in the last two billion years … this is exponential change, and we have difficulty coming to terms with exponential change.”
Facing such a bleak prospect, McPherson said there’s no sense in bothering to “fight” climate change.
Most Republicans agree with that!
“It’s locked down, it’s been locked in for a long time — we’re in the midst of our sixth mass extinction,” he told Newshub’s Paul Henry.
So why bother with interviews, why not spend these last remaining moments at home with your family, the host asked.
“I don’t have kids because I could see this happening a long time ago,” McPherson said.
McPherson, who described himself as an anarchist during the interview, said “action is futile.”
“My perspective,” the professor said, is that “there’s nothing to be done to preserve the human species over the next few years.”
McPherson is currently promoting his new book, “Ms. Ladybug and Mr. Honeybee: A Love Story at the End of Time.”
Gee, that was an upper! I’m sure all my readers will run right out and buy the book!
