    You need to stop running in dishonest circles as though this hasn't already been explained to you. It's been explained not once but three times now. You're being intentionally obtuse.

    Red line species are as good as extinct if the factors that are driving their endangerment are not corrected, and soon. Without field observations, your assertions are meaningless.

    You've drawn an imaginary line in the sand - a line that nobody in the field, including biologists, is even making - and then proclaiming that things aren't that dire. The imaginary line you have drawn is between extinct species and critically threatened species. If a species isn't extinct then you don't count it. Meanwhile, critically endangered species will have imminent extinction based on all observations. Yes, it's not if, but when. The factors driving their extinction are human related. I'm sorry you can't handle that, but that's not my problem.

    Like I said before, you just want to be right, you don't care about science.

    No worries. When the "earth cools" a few more degrees, all the dead animals will come back---kind of like a Second Coming, but in the faith of Animism.

    Dude, the Holocene Extinction is the most documented and well supported event since the discovery of Evolution. You do buy that one. Right?

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Your dishonesty is incredible. I hope everyone sees it. In the future I'm going to refer people to this thread.

    But by all means, keep on posting articles from the Atlantic.

    That is good news. I'm happy to be judged by this thread, and especially my exchanges with you. What don't you like about The Atlantic?
