The case of the passenger pigeon is further evidence climate change mitigation is a hoax and man made catastrophic climate disruption is pseudoscience: The Passenger Pigeon died out because of over hunting and habitat destruction, no creature has ever been extinguished by man made global warming.
So wait for another science report, huh?

Then you want no science progress, duh.

Human-caused environmental changes are creating regional combinations of environmental conditions that, within the next 50 to 100 years, may fall outside the envelope within which many of the terrestrial plants of a region evolved. These environmental modifications might become a greater cause of global species extinction than direct habitat destruction. The environmental constraints undergoing human modification include levels of soil nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium and pH, atmospheric CO2, herbivore, pathogen, and predator densities, disturbance regimes, and climate. Extinction would occur because the physiologies, morphologies, and life histories of plants limit each species to being a superior competitor for a particular combination of environmental constraints. Changes in these constraints would favor a few species that would competitively displace many other species from a region. In the long-term, the “weedy” taxa that became the dominants of the novel conditions imposed by global change should become the progenitors of a series of new species that are progressively less weedy and better adapted to the new conditions. The relative importance of evolutionary versus community ecology responses to global environmental change would depend on the extent of regional and local recruitment limitation, and on whether the suite of human-imposed constraints were novel just regionally or on continental or global scales.

Why bother? You don't heed any of the dire "crisis" warnings of any report.

You just keep on posting and posting... knowing full well that you're adding more CO2 into the atmosphere that the "science" you claim to support is already at "tipping point".

You are a hypocrite... and demonstrate it again and again with each post.

"duh..."

Yep... that's the best you can do.

When queried on your hypocrisy, you best answer, only answer, and repeated answer?

"duh..."

Crisis or not? Prove it!

I've wondered a couple times if they were one in the same. There's a similarity in the stunted maturity and both seem to be emotional wrecks.

As has been determined years ago, such as alien species, dirtling & "lyin' brian", they came from beyond the Alpha Centauri multiple star system & can't find the way back to a red dwarf system, to continue their dark sub-existence.

Correction:
You wrongly translated the Rep that says Space Blues has his own big tool & likewise for me. Jealousy will never get "ratdownthemiddledownwron ggully", out of the down wrong gully.

However, rumor has it that "ratdownthemiddledownwron ggully" has a small enough tool to satisfy the rats in the down wrong gully.

This is something the cons don't want to admit, that capitalism, their god, can not correct everything. They use middle school tactics because they have no real facts supporting their arguments. Their best defense is to denigrate liberals as progressives. Alas, what is the opposite or progressive? But in their defense of capitalism, they will risk the very planet they live on and their children and grandchildren for an ideology.
The Earth is warming. CO2 is a GHG. Burning fossil fuels increases the CO2 in the atmosphere. They cannot admit this because fossil fuels grease the wheels of capitalism.
You notice as soon as anyone mentions the "C" word out comes a barrage of abuse from the right as thou we are talking Blasphemy. If the Environment was on top of the value list in the "C" world then all the worlds problems would be solved. That doesn't mean socialism or anything else it's using the same system to slowly engineer renewable's as something ten times the value of fossil products. Then the market would correct itself from always being driven by the dark side.

With each post your credibility drops. You don't' care.

With each post, you puff out more CO2. You don't care.

With each post, the "science" you tout, is foiled. You don't care.

You're incapable of having adult conversations. You don't care.

I'm convinced Sponge Bob is too advanced for you.

Try Clifford the Big Red Dog.

And shut up already.
