Military Minds Contemplate Human Extinction ?

A new risk assessments report, endorsed by the former Chief of the Australian Defense Force, warns that current scientific reports analyzing impacts of global warming, habitat loss, pollution and other drivers of the mass extinction are misleading and underplaying the threat, because of a conservative emphasis upon known probabilities. The report stresses that analyses of known possibilities is essential for national security risk assessments, on a global scale.

The report reinforces the messages of new movements such as Extinction Rebellion and the global youth climate strikes of Fridays for Future. (See https://rebellion.earth/ and https://www.fridaysforfuture.org/ )

  1. Civilization coming to an end? By “civilization” do you mean the man-made progress and development that has brought about climate change and is leading to near-term planetary destruction?

    My goodness! Whatever will we do without the jobs that exploit, pollute, distract, and facilitate genocide? Without the jobs, how will we have unions?

    I believe that a better world is possible. It is just a question of which comes first, the end of civilization or the end of life on earth caused by the pollution that civilization cannot exist without. I’m rooting for the end of civilization and the slim possibility of some life forms surviving this poisoned planet.
