The professor may get his wish, only the mechanism is quite different from the one he proposes...


Oops, you people don't understand...

No! You were quite clear...

"If I am brutally honest, the only realistic way I see emissions falling as fast as they need to, to avoid catastrophic #climate breakdown, is the culling of the human population by a pandemic with a very high fatality rate." 

The professor does not define which emissions are powerful enough to impact global climate. If he is speaking about carbon dioxide, he has his head up his ass. Unfortunately, his volcanoes may be the instrumentality of future climate change or, in the short term, Islamacists in London culling idiotic professors. 

Emeritus Professor William J. McGuire, Professor of Geophysical & Climate Hazards at University College London, is one of those scientists who steps beyond the bounds of science to produce fictional scenarios that appear to mirror his political agenda and have little or nothing that can be substantiated by science.

For example, take his latest crackpot tweet that a super-catastrophe, in this case a pandemic, would produce beneficial effects on the Earth's climate. A specious, unprovable hypothesis based on no scientific evidence that man's relatively few years on this planet has produced a planetary-scale effect on the ever-changing global climate that appears to operate on geological time scales that reduce man's climate input to a statistical nullity.

This is the type of speculative fiction that belongs in a dystopian novel, which postulates the effects of losing humanity's best and brightest as we head toward darker times.

Consider the proposition that some mad scientist in a Chinese laboratory decided that they were the one to save the Earth and released a relatively benign virus into the world as a model for a more infectious and virulent man-made virus.

Bottom line...

We have reached the state where bioscientists and lab workers must be screened as closely as we do our nuclear researchers. Perhaps more so since it is far easier for a graduate student in a college bio-lab to create a global pandemic than it is for a nuclear engineering graduate to build a viable atomic weapon.

We are so screwed, especially when the political elite, including the eco-fascists and their oligarch masters, decide who is to live and who is to die based on identity politics that favor the consolidation of power "for the good of the people" -- the very people they wish to exterminate.
