Buy Real Estate in the Arctic now

THE world has already passed the point of no return on global warming, and efforts to slow it may already be doomed, one of Britain's best-known environmentalists says. Professor James Lovelock said billions would die by the end of the century, and civilisation as it is known would be unlikely to survive. Billions will be born and billions will die. That's the cycle of life. Whether they die early because of global warming is another issue.
"The few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic, where the climate remains tolerable," Professor Lovelock wrote in the newspaper.
Must be depressing living with him.

  • Billions will die by the end of the century…

    Well then buster that’s someone elses problem, I’m 56 now. Good luck new borns.

  • Of course no one around today will be alive to tell him he’s wrong either.

    Pity.

  • Oh my god, the planets done for. If only it seemed possible, a century or two from now, to loft a few sheets of mylar between earth and the sun and let some of the accumulated warm out. but no, we are done for.

  • Looks like Mars is going to sound like a good place to live.

  • Quick! Everyone get scared into joining the green movement!

    and they don’t deny it….

    “What we’ve got to do in energy conservation is try to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, to have approached global warming as if it is real, means energy conservation, so we will be doing the right thing anyway in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.” — Timothy Wirth, former U.S. Senator (D-Colorado)

    Perhaps these people might have an underlying, Michael Moore style, political agenda?

  • Professor James Lovelock said billions would die by the end of the century, and civilisation as it is known would be unlikely to survive.

    Interesting forcast. If he is correct then a loss of 2 billion people (after all he says “billions”) equates to the net loss of more than 21 million people a year for 94 years.

    Put another way, that’s a net loss of more than 400,000 people a week, every week, till the end of the century.

    This seems unlikely.
