Another perspective on mass extinction

This post on Professor Mike Hulme’s Site really does raise issues that have been swamped by the panic that follows the impending mass extinction that everybody is talking about. He argues that things like equality and justice are being lost in the climate panic. He also questions if the science really is taking us down that route.

I know that I have felt a huge sense of panic and hopelessness over the last few months because of the enormity of the problem and the evidently short timescale to solve it. The result was paralysis.

What is obvious is that this is a problem of the ‘developed world’. That we go on adding to the problem day-by-day. To then obsess about their imminent demise seems selfish and neurotic.

So, read this and see what you think.
