Prevent dumping trash, sewage, bombs, waste, runoffs, spills, robots, heat,.. in/into our oceans.

The mere fact that it is no danger whatsoever to this planet.......

Only to our species!

And do you give a sh!t about the human race?

As it is... I don't.

If we can't hack it... We simply won't remain here.

Nonsense. Have you heard about warming seas, melting glaciers, rising sea levels, changing climates, more droughts, more floods, more forst fires, etc? What then happens to all the species, not just humans??

There's nowhere else to go but stay here and make it home.

There you go again...

Throw the facts and figures in, and that proves your point...

Well let me be the first to tell you...

1) There is no such thing as Father Christmas,(well there is really... But it is your parent).

2) There is no such thing as experts are always right,(well there is really... But they only think they are).

HUH?

Just because you don't understand science or mathematics does not mean science is replaced with silly stories.

I'm a physicist...

Trained not to believe (blindly) all I hear or see...

And remember it is YOU who claims I don't understand science or mathematics...

A claim is an opinion, prove what you say!

Gosh. We humans are so dadgum evil aren't we? Wow. We are just worthless abusers of our pristine and oh so Holy Gaia! Makes me wanna cry so much... Just think how Gaia would rejoice if we just aborted ourselves out of existence! Gaia and Malthus and Ehrlich would be dancing in the streets. Yeah! And just look at the damage anthropoglobalclimategenicwarm ingchange is doing. Well, despite the fact that the Arctic melt has reversed itself, we must ignore that Algore, er man, behind the curtain. Facts are meaningless. It is only our hoax, er theory, that matters! The Book of the Hockey Stick must be read and we must look at and interpret the tea leaves it leaves behind! My new Bumpah Stikkuh "Bombs Beez Badz"... All Hail The Mighty Gaia!

I take it back...

You really are an anarac!

I don't drown in facts and figures, I question them, test them, improve them, if I can...

But one thing I don't do.. is believe without reservation, everything I see and read.

Hey anorak-wanna-be, blah blah.

Learn about the scientific method. You are a fake human aka coprolite.

You are asking a fake human aka coprolite, incompetent balloon.

Its opinions are not evidence-based.

.. current extinction rates are higher than would be expected from the fossil record..

You know what a bull is full of, and how easily led it can be with the ring in its nose?

That's you... Full of BS and led by any fact, no matter how ridiculous or sublime.

Most of your facts are based on flimsy patterns and averages, and have no substance.
