    Another attempt by a group of idiots, err I mean scientists, to scare people into action with no reason or purpose.

    Scientists: 1 in 4 mammals faces extinction - Yahoo! News

    We have heard this over and over for the last 15 years, hell we should all be starving by now on a denuded lifeless rock according to some of these scientists.

    Remind me about that Ice Age in the 1980's and our lose of all Oil by the mid 80's?

    They do not even know all the mammals on the planet but can state that 1 in 4 will die soon.

    I guess they are all vegetarians now to save the mammals?

    My god they say 1/4 of all mammals are doomed and soon, how could they in good conscious, if this were actually factual continue to consume any mammal, further they stated that1/2 of all mammals are in decline, another reason that if they honestly believe this bullshit they should all be eating fruit and vegetables now, and no fish either they are all dieing too.

    Though good luck on them affording any corn.

    Actually if the price of Corn continues to climb all the owners of those animals in large numbers have said they will have no choice but to cut their herds, flocks stys, what ever you want to call them.

    So actually the domestic herds in the US ARE in danger due to corn being gobbled up for alternate fuel sources. Which will of course result in less available and even HIGHER prices for the meat.

    Keep trying to twist, THE link claims that 1 in 4 mammals will go extinct and SOON. It further claims that 1 in 2 mammals are in decline.

    I didn't make it up, they did, err I mean discovered it.

    yeah, 1 in 4 species of mammels. you are trying to twist that to say that our cattle will go extinct. a rediculous claim considering the massive populations of cows, sheep, chickens, and pigs. do you think that the common housecat will soon go extinct? how about golden retrievers? goldfish? yeah, theyre endangered too

    NO, YOU are trying to twist it into that so as to discredit the fact I posted the link. The link is clear. I did not create it, nor fund it nor participate on it. But hey keep trying.

    you seem to be having trouble compehending this. your link said that 1 in 4 species of mammals may go extinct. you then made a statement about how the scientists should be vegetarians to save animals. ive been trying to make you realize that the article says nothing about our meat sources going extinct (cows, sheep, pigs, chicken). so therefore your vegetarian statement was pretty stupid. get it?
