    I know the saying expect and prepare for the worst, because anything else is bonus. How many of us really believe that we will see the end times in our lifetimes, biblically speaking. Also how many believe that the world will die by anasteroid or war of somekind that devestates the globe, an extinction level event in our life times. What do you believe?

    I am supremely confident that Mother Nature will cleanse the Earth just as she cleansed it of dinosaurs, Neanderthals, etc......She really doesn't need our help and laughs loudly at Algore and the Luddite choir sufficiently arrogant to believe the human race is more than a mere pimple on the ass of progress.

    Dead is dead.

    Dead.

    Dissipated as a fart in a windstorm.

    Of course something slow might get my attention.

    The odds of an extinction level event are extremely low. Eventually though the dice come up snake eyes enough times in a row and your goose is cooked. That is why it is imperative that we spend our limited wealth in space exploration and technology to get us off of this rock. Wasting money on global warming pseudo science is not just stupid, it is a crime against humanity.

    The odds at any given moment are currently low.

    Ask me again next week.
