    The human race may be doomed but the planet certainly is not. More than 95% of the species that have ever existed are extinct. One the last human is gone the earth will slowly start to recover until it reaches peak diversification again.

    If we plant more trees (instead of cutting them down) we might, just might, be able to pull this round.

    No we're done sadly. It's now no longer overly dramatic to say the Human Race only has a century or two. Almost all scientists share that view.

    Quite amazing when you think that we have basically fucked it.

    Planet will be ok, it's the large mammals that will be fucked.

    There has always been beer. It has been suggested that making beer led to the change from hunter gatherer to settled farming societies. Those neolithic hangovers must have been brutal.

    Bearing in mind plastic has only been around for about 100 years and the effect it’s already having. It’s the blink of an eye in ecological terms. :(

    There's no doubt we're in a tight spot........

    As a nation I think we're not doing too badly - but anything we do will not matter much unless the countries with really big populations change their priorities - China, India, Russia, USA.

    I learned a horrific fact the other day that an area of rainforest equivalent to a football pitch is being lost every minute (or was it every second?).

    However I also learned that the oceanic phytoplankton absorb way more CO2 than the rainforests do.

    Therein lies the problem. Overeducated fools with a sneering contempt for anyone that disagrees. Overpopulation is the problem mate, not Elsie from Pallion putting her cans in the wrong coloured bin.

    But warming, increasingly acidic seas (more dissolved CO2) are inhibiting their growth cycles.
