Anxious About Extinctions? Go Check The Facts!

May 17, 2019

By Paul Homewood 


Another claim apparently made by the BBC’s Costing the Earth was that “hundreds of species” were going extinct every day.


Whatever the numbers, according to the IPCC there is little evidence that the rate of extinction has been increasing over the last several decades, or that recent extinctions have been due to global warming:

    It was the way the programme accepted the statement as fact which annoyed me.
    If someone told me that hundreds of species was becoming extinct every day, I would ask them to name those which had become extinct yesterday.
    Obviously the anxiety being experience by those taking part was largely due to their misinterpretation of what they had been told.

      Icke has it down as generation snowflake, they are all primed to be trigged to be offended hearing what they are programmed to not believe. It gets to the point where they will strike in school wave their little green books and burn the unbelievers.

    How many species are in fact made extinct by sampling ?
    Or have been made so by Governments installing streetlghts so they are atttracted to predation,
    Or have gone just because the car and train commit roadkill(van Vliet 2011) running at 2 bugs every 6.2 miles.

    I have never heard such a load of nonsense on the BBC. Talk about bias and propaganda. It is difficult to believe that so many people are taken in by such garbage, or even that the BBC produces such unbiased BS.

    It is appalling that these blatant lies are just accepted at face value with no debate. I was listening to my grand kids age 5 and 8 the other day and the 8 year old is most worried about the Orangutans suffering (Attenborough). The 5 year old is aware of Polar Bears and Walrus suffering , he does not associate this with climate change. (yet!). The indoctrination starts young these days.

    This blog has a good coverage of the IUCN data.

    Especially the chart. As Eschenbach says: “Where are the corpses?”

    It seems the BBC is now hell bent on stoking the fires of climate hysteria which is resulting in a disturbing increase in mental stress in our children and youth. OFCOM should take action on this as the BBC is now blatantly ignoring its legal responsibilities.

    The subsequent program to this on the blog was an incredible mess of emotional outpourings from the green blob devoid of any reference to facts or logical thought. All totally politically motivated. Not a single contribution asked whether the implied impending catastrophe was in fact a significant reality in the perspective of the time periods involved.

    In this context IMO the BBC has become a very dangerous organisation; for it is closing down sensible debate on the many aspects of human activity which do need to be addressed.

    The disastrous side effects of the climate hoax are now becoming clear. Evo anxiety is causing depression among the indoctrinated youth of our country which is resulting in increased suicides. The greed of the rent seeking climate hoaxers knows no bounds.

    I have seen it all now, schoolchildren going on Climate Emergency Strike, transported to and from the school by their parents in large diesel cars.! Amazing, you could not make it up! Do they know what irony is?

    I live near a school and the traffic generated by the school is unbelievable, I have reached the conclusion it must be the Mums drop them off in one car, and the Dads come in the other family car to wave them off.

    I would point out to the “the older generation have ruined our future” brigade that when I went to school 50+ years ago we were all very environmentally friendly, we either walked or rode our bicycles!
