First they told us things were bad for us.
Then they told us those things would kill us.
After that they told us those things would kill other people.
They then upped the ante a bit and told us we were killing the planet.
Do you notice a trend here? Every bit of research has to be that bit more dramatic than the last. They clamber over each other in their bid to reach the top of the doom laden pile, heaping dangers on top of catastrophes, each step producing a more lurid prediction than the last.
I think we may have a winner.
Forget the Church of Health. They are at mere kindergarten level with their prophecies.
Climate change? More disastrous than the health predictions because its on a global scale, but they merely claim that temperatures will rise along with sea levels.
But the winner has to be the latest study. The concept of drowning cities is a trifling inconvenience compared to the latest predictions. Rising sea levels and mass starvation are of no consequence whatsoever.
We are all doooomed.
Yes folks, we are about to become extinct.
Being a study though they always have to include a little rider to their headline – We are a about to become extinct unless we act now.
Unfortunately they don’t tell us how to get out of this predicament apart from a few thinly veiled suggestions that we cull the richest in society who are apparently the root cause of our impending demise [no surprise there]. I’m all for that as it should be good sport. I must polish up the old sniper rifle as tourists are a bit thin on the ground lately.
But after we have rid the world of the wealthy, what then? Anything that’s extinct cannot be reintroduced as it is, well, extinct. Do we teach drones to reproduce themselves to replace our deceased avian friends? Do we train cockroaches to pollinate flowers?
Not that I’m that worried anyway.
By the time it all comes to pass, I’ll be long extinct myself.
