Human Extinction: Pro and Con

How do you feel about the prospects for human extinction? More specifically, are you in favour of human extinction, against it, or indifferent?

Listed below are several websites dealing with human extinction, both pro and con:

Pro Extinction

Voluntary Human Extinction Movement
Gaia Liberation Front
Church of Euthanasia
More links here

Pro Survival

Lifeboat Foundation
Alliance to Rescue Civilization
More links with emphasis on space
Surviving Future Technologies

"Civilisation is Doomed" Sites

Life After the Oil Crash
Timeline of Doom
Survival Blog
Survivalist Blog
Survival Links (just in case)

Several bona fide existential risks are hanging over the Earth. Unlikely visions of doom such as "peak oil" and "global warming" are popular catastrophes du jour, but they are two of the less likely sources of doom we face. Over the next two decades, humans will move progressively away from petroleum and fossil fuels, to substitute fuels and energies. And for the foreseeable future, a devastating ice age will be more likely than any type of warming catastrophe.

Al Fin blog salutes those working to mitigate the influences of the several bona fide existential risks that threaten the planet. For those such as the current US Congress, the IPCC, NASA GISS, and other incompetent political/bureaucratic groups who divert important resources away from solving real problems, only to waste precious resources on phantom fears, Al Fin--together with Oynklent Green [OTC:OYNK]--is helping to devise suitable remedies and work arounds.

I always tell the pro-extinction types that I don't take them seriously because they're hypocrites. When they ask why I would think such a thing my response is "You're still alive."

I am usually against human extinction but there are days lately when I tend to lean toward the indifferent.

These pro-human-extinction types are simply freaks. In the age of internet they have web sites. That's all.

Sure, they are freaks and hypocrites. Still they have a strong influence among the impressionable young whose pre-frontal brains have not myelinated yet. Many of these youngsters make firm decisions not to have children, "to save the Earth."

Extinctionists are lethal mutants. Their religious cousins are training suicide bombers around the world. One of them -- Ahmedinejad -- controls an entire country doing its best to build a credible nuclear arsenal. Think of it, an entire nation as a suicide bomb!

Think of the president of the US sitting down with such an extinctionist head of state, saying: what can we do to help you?
