Guy McPherson – Human Extinction within 10 years

Humans are heading for mass extinction. Mankind has less then 10 years left according to climate change scientist Guy McPherson on World Newshub. There’s no point trying to fight climate change – we’ll all be dead in the next decade and there’s nothing we can do to stop it, a visiting scientist claims. Guy McPherson, a biology professor at the University of Arizona, says the human destruction of our own habitat is leading towards the world’s sixth mass extinction. Instead of fighting, he says we should just embrace it and live life while we can. ‘It’s locked down, it’s been locked in for a long time – we’re in the midst of our sixth mass extinction,’ he told Paul Henry on Thursday. But Professor James Renwick, a climate scientist at Victoria University, says people should not use his words more as an excuse to give up.
