Scientists Gone Wild! End of Human Race Within 90 Years.

It's hard to drink coffee at the same time as reading the prediction of this top scientist without laughing and choking as the liquid goes down the wrong way. I stumbled upon this little gem all the way back from late 2004.

A top NZ scientist believes that there will be no human race left inside 90 years. That means there are people being born today that will probably see the last day of human beings on planet Earth.

Scary thought isn't it? Only of course if you smoked too much weed during your youth. For the rest of us it is just more petrol on the fire that has become the global warming scam.

Stand back while I toss a match.

(See the original article here.)

A top New Zealand researcher is using a prestigious award ceremony in Christchurch to warn that humans face extinction by the end of the century.

Professor Peter Barrett will be presented with the Marsden Medal tonight for his 40-year contribution to Antarctic research, latterly focusing on climate change.

The director of Victoria University's Antarctic Research Centre expects to use his acceptance speech to warn climate change was a major threat to the planet.

"After 40 years, I'm part of a huge community of scientists who have become alarmed with our discovery, that we know from our knowledge of the ancient past, that if we continue our present growth path, we are facing extinction," Barrett said. "Not in millions of years, or even millennia, but by the end of this century."

Barrett won the award – designed to mark lifetime achievement in the sciences – for his research into Antarctica, which began with helping prove New Zealand was once part of the Gondwanaland supercontinent.

He then changed disciplines, to predicting the impact of climate change. The result was a body of research on Antarctic ice sheets "which to our surprise is becoming increasingly relevant to the world as a consequence of global warming".

In a way this might be good news. I am going to ask politicians to stop wasting money funding long term infrastructure like roads, railways, universities etc. In fact education funding can be cut to zero right now. What's the point of spending money on education when it's only got a less than 90 year time frame for pay back. Space research and medical research should likewise be stopped.

Is there anyone else besides Kevin Parker of Deutsche Bank that actually believes this nonsense? If you do believe it please contact me and I will arrange medical assistance for you.

Update: I almost forgot, UN chief Ban Ki-moon also believes the human race will be driven to extinction. He announced his prophecy in 2007 at yet another climate conference in Bali. Kevin Rudd was there and didn't criticize that statement. It would be a good question to ask him if he agrees with Ban Ki-moon and Barrett that we are going to become extinct due to AGW. I wonder if Ban Ki-moon also believes in the tooth fairy. You have to be a little worried when the leader of the UN makes absurd statements.

The good Dr Barrett appears to have spent far too long down in Antartica with his head buried in cold snow.

I wonder when we are going to see the billions of humans die that Barrett predicts. Will we see it beginning in the next 30 years? 70 years? or will they all die in the last decade leading up to 2100.

As a member of an endangered species I am going to have myself listed in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and try to get my own world heritage reserve to live in. I hope they can make the reserve somewhere around Port Douglas up on the Barrier Reef - that would be nice. I am sure Dr Barrett would support such a IUCN Red listing - he really has no choice.

You climate deniers just don't get it do you? The optimum sentence in the article was "if things continue along the current path." keep up the wanton disinformation and interference. That's obviously all you are good at.

I feel sorry for your distorted view on life Anthony. You obviously agree that the human race is going to be extinct within 90 years. Even if things "continue along the current path" which they will not as our technology and economy develops (assuming we can avoid the best efforts of misguided fools like yourself) do you really believe that the last humans already walk upon this earth.

Of course you didn’t quite get that quote correct Anthony but then you doomsdayists are known for data distortion. Prof Barrett actually said “if we continue our present growth path”. As the failure at the Copenhagen gabfest showed we will indeed be very likely to continue our present growth path and a good thing for humanity (yourself excluded of course as you have already given up on the human race) that it will.

Anthony, get the hell out of the gene pool you twonk.
