Natural Selection – NOT MANKIND – Driving a Million Species Extinct

The main media outlets are controlled by leftists, and that includes some overseas as well. Instead of reporting the news, they are more occupied with promoting the radical leftist political agendas, including climate change.

I’ve reported this before, but just a quick reminder that in the early 1960s, the United States and Russia met with the purpose of finding a unifying factor that could help lead to a one-world government. This took place during the short tenure of President John F. Kennedy. It was agreed upon that the threat of nuclear war was not sufficient to lead to their socialist goal, but the environment was. Even if there wasn’t any real environmental problem, they would create one. From that time until now, leftists, also known today as Democrats, have been pushing climate change to help push their socialist agenda.

We’ve been hearing about global warming and that it’s all man’s fault, but the leftists ignore the fact that history shows the earth has heated up, cooled down, heated up, cooled down and is now heating up again. It is a natural cyclic event that has been happening for centuries before man and his industrial revolution.

To help their cause of creating a global emergency, climate changers are now running around crying that one million species of plants and animals are currently threatened with extinction and that it’s all mans fault.

Have you ever heard of natural selection?

The process of natural selection is not the driving force of evolution, as they claim. If one truly studies natural selection, it does one of two things – it keeps a population stable or it drives it to extinction. This has to do with genetic variability or the amount of change found in a species’ DNA.

As a population splits off, plant or animal, they lose some of their genetic variability. As this population further spreads out and divides it loses even more genetic variability. Eventually, there is not enough genetic variability to allow the plants or animals to adapt to any environmental changes, such as temperature, moisture, etc.

Let me give you an example. Dogs referred to as mutts (the products of numerous breeds breeding together) are by far the healthier dogs and the dogs that can more readily adapt to changes in their environment. However, many pure breeds, like a Maltese (we have 2) that have been pure bred for over 2,000 years, have many health problems and generally don’t live as long as a mutt, nor are they as easily adaptable to changes in their environment.

Thus, natural selection drives the species to extinction.

Another example is the cheetah. Many wildlife experts are worried that the cheetah could soon go extinct because it has virtually no genetic variability left, thus it cannot adapt to very much change to its environment.

On the flip side, when a population, especially a large population, stays in one general area, the genetic variability is passed from generation to generation and thus the population remains fairly stable. Additionally, these kinds of populations can readily adapt to many changes to their environment.

Thus, natural selection keeps the population stable.

Yes, mankind is the cause of extinction for some, but for most, the reason they are becoming extinct is due to natural selection and their inability to adapt to environmental changes and this has been happening for centuries.

Therefore, don’t swallow the socialist bait of manmade climate change being the big bad guy that is killing off the world. It’s mostly a socialist ploy to help push their socialist agenda of total control over every aspect of our lives.
