According to retired professor Guy McPherson.

We are all doomed.



He's been labelled a crackpot and has received plenty of hate mail.

But retired professor Guy McPherson stands by his controversial claims that humans will cease to exist within 10 years.

He explains his reasoning at a free public lecture in Whanganui on Thursday. The talk, Abrupt Climate Change, takes place at the Davis Lecture Theatre starting at 6pm.

Mr McPherson is a retired professor of conservation biology from the University of Arizona.

He blames climate change and the impacts already unleashed by human activity for his extreme prophecy. And it's too late to change the apocalypse that is to come, he says.

"I can't see humans existing within 10 years. We can do nothing to stop the planet becoming too hot to grow food and support life. It is already happening and we have less than a decade left."

I'll remember to come back to this thread in 10 years and a day to poke fun at retired professor Guy McPherson.

10 years eh?

Oh well, thanks for the heads up, a fine excuse for another beer.

Is "Whanganui" a street corner where people rant out loud arguing with voices in their head?

I swear these climate change nutters sound just like your fundamentalist Christians preaching their BS. It truly is a religion of climate change that these fools belong to and 'worship'.

Since he was born in 1960, he will certainly have some splainin to do when this turns out to be a bunch of hype. He's a bit young to be retired, so maybe he's trying to get some funding somehow, using scare tactics.

I think I'll continue to act as though the world is not going to end. Seems the sensible thing to do.

Final arrangements are necessary.

So within ten years this Guy claims we will all be dead in a kind of end of the world calamity. Then the only question left to ask is which day it will happen. Over to you Bill.

I take climate change very seriously. It's a real threat deserving our utmost attention in my view.

That said, humans will be around in 10 years. I don't need prophecy to believe we'll be around for another 100 and then some.

My to do list this weekend;

Buy espresso machine for wife
Buy telescope for son
Go on a serial-killing spree to devour human flesh because the world will end
Buy filters for my furnace
Get tires checked.

Mother Nature has been alive for 4 billion years.

What can the Human Species do now?

Earth is dispensing massive amounts of methane without our help.

Al gore made a similar claim in 2006.


In January, 2006 — when promoting his Oscar-winning (yes, Oscar-winning) documentary, An Inconvenient Truth — Gore declared that unless we took “drastic measures” to reduce greenhouse gasses, the world would reach a “point of no return” in a mere ten years. He called it a “true planetary emergency.”


What year is it now?

Yeah, I'd skip getting the tyres checked, who cares if you are involved in a fatal road accident? We're all dead in n 10 years.

Given all of existence is nothing more than a persistent illusion I'm having (so said some crackpot academic somewhere), you're all going poof when I die, anyway.

Sorry.
