This is exactly why no one takes global warming seriously. People are not going to be extinct in 50 years because of climate change. Climate change has been going on since the Earth was formed. Over the last 50,000 years 65 percent of the mammal species weighing over 44kg have gone extinct and it wasn't man that caused it. When climates change animals and Man either adapt or go extinct, I think man has a pretty good chance of surviving climate change. It's war and mad men that will make man extinct.
Anymore? So, you are cool with the possibility that in 50 years the human population could become extinct. But, by then you will be dead anyway, so who cares. You worked and got good wages, so now that you collect social security then those wages need to go DOWN. You get your SS and now those after you don’t need it, so kill it off - it is YOUR TAX DOLLARS that you probably don’t even pay on SS. Maybe you got a pension, and now have to stop those after you to. So, why not be selfish and not care if you kill a planet. After all, those taxes you probably don’t pay are more important, that dollar fifty you save is worth letting the human species become extinct.
The right uses “what about the children” effectively as propaganda, but don’t give a crap about the children. You go look your grandchild in the eyes and tell him/her that you are not playing that game anymore (that you never did) and they will die in 40 or 50 years when the human species becomes extinct, but, on the plus side, if they are old enough to work for a dime a day it will save them a dollar or two a year in taxes. I bet they will love you for that trade... they will know from you that money is forever, even if people are not.
As for the first part, there is no need to say anything as you already clearly state you will not listen to anything except the Faux News spin.
"Climate change has been a significant factor in mass mammal extinction over most of the last fifty thousand years, according to an international team.
The team used global data modelling to build continental 'climate footprints' and map them on to extinction data.
"Between 50,000 and 3,000 years before present (BP), 65 percent of mammal species weighing over 44kg went extinct, together with a lower proportion of small mammals," says lead author Dr David Nogues-Bravo from the University of Copenhagen.
"Why these species became extinct in such large numbers has been hotly debated for over a century."
Over most of the last 50,000 years, the global climate became colder and drier, reaching full glacial conditions 21,000 years ago.
Since then, it's has become warmer, leading to colonization of new regions by humans - and many believed that it was this human colonization that cause the mass extinctions.
The study shows that climate change had a global influence over extinctions throughout the late quaternary, but the level of extinction seems to be related to each continent’s footprint of climate change.
In Africa, for example, where the climate changed relatively little, there were fewer extinctions. However, in North America, which experienced more climate change, more species suffered extinction."
