Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

In some ways, the planet's worst mass extinction -- 250 million years ago, at the end of the Permian Period -- may parallel climate change today. On Thursday, a team of scientists offered a detailed accounting of how marine life was wiped out during the Permian-Triassic mass extinction. Global warming robbed the oceans of oxygen, they say, putting many species under so much stress that they died off. And we may be repeating the process, the scientists warn. If so, then climate change is "solidly in the category of a catastrophic extinction event," said Curtis Deutsch, an earth scientist at the University of Washington and co-author of the new study, published in the journal Science.

How can we do that with the Caravan of Doom on our border readying themselves to attack with pestilence and terrorism? How can you sleep at night with hordes of hungry zombies attacking our southern border?

We can't enjoy life because it's a National Emergy!
