    I am all for partying because "why not"? We live in warm wonderful times.

    Extinction is part of the evolutionary process but animals that go extinct no longer evolve. Natural Selection occurs in those species that survive. There are many ways animals went extinct. We don't know that "climate change" killed off the dinosaurs. Orogenies (mountain building episodes) pushed up the inland seas in North America and created a situation where all species mixed and this may have resulted in a serious problem for dinosaurs as new parasites, competitors etc were suddenly thrust on them. The number of species declined and flowering plants were beginning to dominate. Mammals were adapting faster to the flowering plants and dinosaurs were in trouble and then the asteroid hit which likely wiped out the large land animals. To call that apocalypse "climate change" is a stretch but it certainly changed the climate for a while.

    Man is a part of nature. Some people seem to deny that we are primates. That is obviously not true. We are very successful primates and a part of nature but we have to try to keep our environment and home as clean as reasonably possible. It would be nuts to do otherwise.

    Over 95% of all species that ever existed are now extinct - so yes - it's very much a part of life on earth. AGW, on the other hand is not a natural process, it's driven by human activity and defended by human ignorance. It may indeed cause many extinctions, none of which will be natural....

    Actually one good extinction will come out of this - the republican party will finally be see as the parade of clowns it has become and will slide down the tubes of history into ignominious extinction.


    you guys are such douche bags!!

    It is yeah but I doubt any creature in history willingly accelerated their own extinction, all probably fought against it

    all the more so, since the overwhelming odds are that you personally will die some kind of horrible death, long, long before the human race itself becomes extinct

    though you never know. maybe you'll get lucky on that one. one way or the other.
