Yeah kids being scared into "needing strong physiologic drugs" because they are being terrified by climate propaganda that specifically target them, I would want that deleted too.

I wasn't threatening to delete anything. I find it easier when people just out themselves than I do arguing with them.

Amusing. Misleading. True for arid places. When moist rainforests (past carbon loss dominated by decay) burn, that is not due to past fire suppression. Because there never were any past fires to suppress.

Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

Here we are again.... The Greta Show...

All she is - is a 17 year old child that has gotten a hold of a microphone. What is her platform? I am ANGRY...

Well, just like my 3 adult children (who I love), I don't listen to angry children.

And this one.... I do not love.. An she (or her handlers) thinks she is beyond criticism because she is a "child". Now she is almost 18, and is an unfortunate public figure who CAN be criticized. Even if her ideas had some merit, they would not be for her to shout out, but more respected, mature leaders in their field of expertise.....

How dare she get so much publicity that the media actually asked the American President what HE thought of her ideas.

Yup, I saw the news is bringing out the Greta Show again.. "I do not want NET ZERO, but ABSOLUTE ZERO."

Yes, she wants to shut down the world..

Lefty... I am not trying to argue with you .... But...

I thought that you were a well-rounded individual that is intelligent enough to not jump to the ticking of a "DOOMSDAY CLOCK"...

The earth is Billions of years old... It will be alive for another Billion years...

Do you actually think that driving to work will destroy the earth?

Or even more unbelievable.. That we can make global changes (reversals of climate) by banning plastic straws and legislating changes in Global human behavior?

I'm just throwing these questions out there.

Doomsday Clock
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation
Jump to search
This article is about the symbol of global catastrophe. For the Smashing Pumpkins song, see Doomsday Clock (song). For the comic series, see Doomsday Clock (comics).
"Minutes to Midnight" redirects here. For other uses, see Minutes to Midnight (disambiguation).
The Doomsday Clock pictured at a setting of "100 seconds to midnight"

The Doomsday Clock is a symbol that represents the likelihood of a man-made global catastrophe. Maintained since 1947 by the members of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists,[1] the Clock is a metaphor for threats to humanity from unchecked scientific and technical advances. The Clock represents the hypothetical global catastrophe as "midnight" and the Bulletin's opinion on how close the world is to a global catastrophe as a number of "minutes" to midnight, assessed in January of each year. The main factors influencing the Clock are nuclear risk and climate change.[2] The Bulletin's Science and Security Board also monitors new developments in the life sciences and technology that could inflict irrevocable harm to humanity.[3]

The Clock's original setting in 1947 was seven minutes to midnight. It has been set backward and forward 23 times since then, the largest-ever number of minutes to midnight being 17 (in 1991), and the smallest 100 seconds (1 minute and 40 seconds) in January 2020.

The clock was set at two minutes to midnight in January 2018, and left unchanged in 2019 due to the twin threats of nuclear weapons and climate change.[4] On 23 January 2020, it was moved forward to 100 seconds (1 minute 40 seconds) before midnight, based on the increased threats to global stability posed by "a nuclear blunder", exacerbated by the rate of climate change.[5]

Where does this mention literally destroying the planet?
