Looks like a slow news day, Alister Doyle (resident journalist of the environmental wacko sect), writes for Reuters under the tag "Environmental Corospondent", writes today:

"OSLO (Reuters) - Humans are responsible for the worst spate of extinctions since the dinosaurs and must make unprecedented extra efforts to reach a goal of slowing losses by 2010, a U.N. report said on Monday.

Habitats ranging from coral reefs to tropical rainforests face mounting threats, the Secretariat of the U.N. Convention on Biological Diversity said in the report, issued at the start of a March 20-31 U.N. meeting in Curitiba, Brazil.

"In effect, we are currently responsible for the sixth major extinction event in the history of earth, and the greatest since the dinosaurs disappeared, 65 million years ago," said the 92-page Global Biodiversity Outlook 2 report.

Apart from the disappearance of the dinosaurs, the other "Big Five" extinctions were about 205, 250, 375 and 440 million years ago. Scientists suspect that asteroid strikes, volcanic eruptions or sudden climate shifts may explain the five.

A rising human population of 6.5 billion was undermining the environment for animals and plants via pollution, expanding cities, deforestation, introduction of "alien species" and global warming, it said."


As Col. Sherman Potter used to say, "Horse feathers!"

"Biological Diversity".......My arse. This isn't a "scientific article" it's a ad for Al Gore and his tirades on warming.

Truth is that Alister Doyle is a left wing hack who writes for some of the most left wing sites on the web and in print. See here, and here.

This is the "genius" that linked the Killer Tsunami of 2004 to Global Warming. So that we are to believe that a earthquake six-miles beneath the ocean where it's about -50 degrees, was caused by Global Warming on the surface. Brilliant!

Want to know why the MSM has lost it's hold and significance? Crap like this will do it every time.
