Does Extinction Rebellion want to prevent extinction? Or encourage it?

‘Scientific evidence confirms that natural cycles, volcanic activity, galactic cosmic rays and changes in solar activity from sunspots have had a negligible effect on our current temperature rise.’ ‘There is nothing magical about the greenhouse effect. We know exactly how to deal with it.’ So states the website of ‘Extinction Rebellion’. Wow! My mind boggles at how the tests for that ‘scientific evidence’ could have been designed, measured and recorded!

These are troubling times. They are times that call out for us to pause as we go through our daily lives, and consider what life is, or should be, all about.

I find as I read these words, that I hope you’ll enjoy, that they have more relevance now than when I wrote them, several years ago. Please do let me know what you think.
