Here We Go Again: UN, Media Recycle Climate Species ‘Extinction’ Fears
CCD Editor: Even Fox News jumped on the bandwagon this morning with an alarmist-tilted report that didn’t mention this was all based on computer projections, that past predictions have not come true, and that many critics oppose these alarmist reports. #
The UN has now officially expanded its mission now to include the “climate change” species extinction scare. The UN is also calling for putting itself in charge of “solving” the newly hyped species “crisis.”
“A huge transformation is needed across the economy and society to protect and restore nature, which provides people with food, medicines, and other materials, crop pollination, fresh water, and quality of life,” according to the new UN report.
The AP quoted one of the activist scientists claiming “this is really our last chance to address all of that.” Hmmm. This is the same tactic the UN has used on climate for years. See: Every climate summit is hailed as the ‘last chance!’
This latest report has been touted as the IPCC for nature by the UN. “The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) included more than 450 researchers who used 15,000 scientific and government reports.
The report’s summary had to be approved by representatives of all 109 nations,” the AP reported. Let’s repeat, “The report’s summary had to be approved by representatives of all 109 nations.”
The same hijacking of science by politicians and UN bureaucrats that has always occurred in the UN IPCC climate reports. See: UN’s alleged scientific process features “government officials” having a say in each line of the report’s summary
But this is not the first time we have warned. As early as 1864, “tipping points” about the “extinction of the species” were issued.
But despite a massive track record of scientific failure about climate and species “crises” the UN, the media and the usual suspect scientists like failed overpopulation guru Paul Ehrlich are at it again.

CNN: If we don’t start “having fewer children” a million species will die.

Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore explains the species scare: “Since species extinction became a broad social concern, coinciding with the extinction of the passenger pigeon, we have done a pretty good job of preventing species extinctions.”
Moore bluntly mocked species extinction claims made by biologist Edward O. Wilson from Harvard University.
Wilson estimated that up to 50,000 species go extinct every year based on computer models of the number of potential but as yet undiscovered species in the world.
Moore: “There’s no scientific basis for saying that 50,000 species are going extinct. The only place you can find them is in Edward O. Wilson’s computer at Harvard University. They’re actually electrons on a hard drive. I want a list of Latin names of actual species.”
UK scientist Professor Philip Stott, emeritus professor of Biogeography at the University of London:
“The Earth has gone through many periods of major extinctions, some much bigger in size than even being contemplated today…Change is necessary to keep up with change in nature itself. In other words, change is the essence. And the idea that we can keep all species that now exist would be anti-evolutionary, anti-nature and anti the very nature of the earth in which we live.”
