    Human race 'will be extinct within 100 years', claims leading scientist

    Professor Frank Fenner has warned that the human race can not survive

    As the scientist who helped eradicate smallpox he certainly know a
    thing or two about extinction.

    And now Professor Frank Fenner, emeritus professor of microbiology at
    the Australian National University, has predicted that the human race
    will be extinct within the next 100 years.

    He has claimed that the human race will be unable to survive a
    population explosion and 'unbridled consumption.’

    Fenner told The Australian newspaper that 'homo sapiens will become
    extinct, perhaps within 100 years.'

    'A lot of other animals will, too,' he added.

    'It's an irreversible situation. I think it's too late. I try not to
    express that because people are trying to do something, but they keep
    putting it off.'

    Since humans entered an unofficial scientific period known as the
    Anthropocene - the time since industrialisation - we have had an
    effect on the planet that rivals any ice age or comet impact, he said.

    Fenner, 95, has won awards for his work in helping eradicate the
    variola virus that causes smallpox and has written or co-written 22
    books.

    He announced the eradication of the disease to the World Health
    Assembly in 1980 and it is still regarded as one of the World Health
    Organisation's greatest achievements.

    He was also heavily involved in helping to control Australia's
    myxomatosis problem in rabbits.

    Last year official UN figures estimated that the world’s population is
    currently 6.8 billion. It is predicted to exceed seven billion by the
    end of 2011.

    Fenner blames the onset of climate change for the human race’s imminent demise.

    He said: 'We'll undergo the same fate as the people on Easter Island.

    'Climate change is just at the very beginning. But we're seeing
    remarkable changes in the weather already.'

    'The Aborigines showed that without science and the production of
    carbon dioxide and global warming, they could survive for 40,000 or
    50,000 years.

    ‘But the world can't. The human species is likely to go the same way
    as many of the species that we've seen disappear.'
    Earth's population

    A map of the world from an atlas which concentrates on population
    rather than land mass released last year. The Earth's population is
    due to hit 7bn by next year

    Retired professor Stephen Boyden, a colleague of Professor Fenner,
    said that while there was deep pessimism among some ecologists, others
    had a more optimistic view.

    'Frank may well be right, but some of us still harbour the hope that
    there will come about an awareness of the situation and, as a result
    the revolutionary changes necessary to achieve ecological
    sustainability.'

    Simon Ross, the vice-chairman of the Optimum Population Trust, said:
    'Mankind is facing real challenges including climate change, loss of
    bio-diversity and unprecedented growth in population.'

    Professor Fenner's chilling prediction echoes recent comments by
    Prince Charles who last week warned of ‘monumental problems’ if the
    world’s population continues to grow at such a rapid pace.

    And it comes after Professor Nicholas Boyle of Cambridge University
    said that a 'Doomsday' moment will take place in 2014 - and will
    determine whether the 21st century is full of violence and poverty or
    will be peaceful and prosperous.

    in the last 500 years there has been a cataclysmic 'Great Event' of
    international significance at the start of each century, he claimed.

    In 2006 another esteemed academic, Professor James Lovelock, warned
    that the world's population may sink as low as 500 million over the
    next century due to global warming.

    He claimed that any attempts to tackle climate change will not be able
    to solve the problem, merely buy us time.

    Doubtful. Humans are resourceful, resilient and unwilling to give up.

    He forgot that in his hypothesis.

    Sure, the current population may not be here after 100 years but I would count on there still being people, albeit less. And no, I'm not talking about de-population measures but rather the natural cycle of life and death.

    What If I say that we might actually live up to this doctors claims, and laugh in his face?

    Super-longevity is right around the corner, and its gonna produce significant results in our lifetimes.

    A monument in the South East of America http://www.radioliberty.com/stones.htm
    also states that the goal is to have no more then 500 million people? Hmmm, smells kinda fishy to me, smells like Illuminati…

    This planet has plenty of room and resources; there are places on this planet that has yet to be discovered. People who think like these scientist are viewing from a very narrow perspective; greed is often influencing their minds.

    If they want, they can be the first to leave while the rest of us figure out a way to co-exist with each other in perfect harmony. It’s the governing system that is flawed and responsible for the poor management of well being…We just all need to work together and stop letting a handful of people dictate how everything should be.

    Peace

    The Green Beautiful - Movie - Banned in EU + ANASTASIA books by Vladimir Megre


    Did you ever wonder why the floor under your feet, in the place where you live are covered with a gray material and you can’t see the soil? Why you use pieces of paper entitling you to any value, without which you won’t have nothing, not even food?[...]

    ......If you haven’t wondered on all this, its because you’re like an ant, small cell in the super-organisma and can’t see beyond your cell’s vision.



    THIS IS WHAT OUR LIFES SHOULD LOOK LIKE

    Everyone interested in pure life, love and our planet should read ANASTASIA:

    The only TRUE eye opener out there ...

    He sounds like he might have been an Illuminati and a eugenicist, involved in developing vaccines and pushed the "global warming" theory.
