    Here we go again.....
    UN sets 2030 biodiversity targets as we face a mass extinction - CNN
    UN report: 1 million species at risk of extinction 02:54
    (CNN)Almost a third of the Earth will need to be protected by 2030 and pollution cut by half to save our remaining wildlife, as we enter the planet's sixth era of mass extinction, according to a United Nations agency.

    The UN Convention on Biological Diversity released a draft plan on Monday, which sets global goals to combat the ongoing biodiversity crisis in the coming decades.
    The convention had set similar targets in 2010, at a summit in Japan. But the world failed to meet most of those 2020 goals -- and is now facing unprecedented extinction rates, threatened ecosystems, and severe consequences for human survival.

    Time tables are soooooo accurate........

    Yes, so we can pollute the air and water all we want and not even think about what happens up in the ozone or at the poles.

    Today we see the flag planted in the "no need to worry" ground in the ongoing retreat.

    Theyve already abandoned the "warming isnt happening" and "humans arent causing it" territory.

    I'm not hoping for mankinds extinction to brag about it, though I'd prefer to live partway through it, just to enjoy the suffering.

    ....and this is why fundamentalism poses a clear and present danger. When people who believe this sort of thing vote accordingly, the future of our planet is jeopardized.

    Well, bus timetables here are pretty accurate.

    However, pressing a button can happen at any time.

    And boom.

    Here is the problem - what you are effectively proposing is wildly reckless and irresponsible, and arguably borders on the criminal (in terms of matters of gross negligence). You appear to be willing to reject the findings of thousands of scientific experts in deference to an exceedingly dubious interpretation of a religious text written 2000 years ago. Even if we Christians agree that Jesus will return, there is huge uncertainty as to when that will happen. You are rolling the dice with the lives of our children - and the planet in general - when you support policies that would ignore environmental hazards because “Jesus is coming to set it all to rights”. This is wildly irresponsible and needs to be called out.

    Criminal? LOL

    Then you are saying the bible, Christ/God are wrong, and the world will not end when Christ returns? Will end later, before or what exactly are you saying?

    I wouldn't place my faith on that, or you'll loose it fast. And you'll need it.
