Humans can become extinct

To the editor:

The pundits and opinionators the likes of Cal Thomas, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and many others, with the lack of fact-based journalism and mostly innuendo, have failed America. Fox opinionator Hannity skillfully phrases a question to get the answer he wants to hear and immediately interrupts the guest if they don’t agree. Junk journalism at its worst.

COVID-19 is just a warm-up for what is to come. Former President Donald Trump’s message to the public of March 1 that everyone should get the vaccine is, as usual, Republican ineptness — they always are a day late and a dollar short and, in this case, there are 600,000 dead from COVID-19.

With Trump’s wheeling and dealing in the past, he will be lucky to escape a jail term, or at least losses of millions in his shady business.

If all of the nations on Earth do not pull together and stop polluting the environment, you can stick a fork in humanity as we know it.

Nature is very fragile and knows no quarter — when it rains, it pours and floods occur; when the wind starts blowing, buildings start falling.

COVID-19, with more misinformation than one can handle, is just a warm-up of what is to come.

When the shorelines keep shrinking and millions of residents move inland, then what? With 91 billion people on the planet, there is no where to hide.

There was a question asked to Stephen Hawking, the theoretical physicist: What is the world going to look like 100 years from now? No matter what one believes, if we can preserve the planet for another 100 years with good climate-change policy, it would be worth the attempt.

Everything in nature is subject to becoming extinct.

Don’t think for a moment that what happened to the dinosaurs can’t happen to humans. Climates change and sea levels change.
