Our dear Chairman and conference organizer Morten Jødal (RIP) gave a talk on the state of life on Earth at the Oslo conference in 2019, here transcribed by Jan-Erik Solheim.
We are told about a 6th mass extinction of species and disappearance of the biological diversity. Facts contradict these claims. We know only a few species going extinct since 1500. The extinction rate is going down. All humans on Earth experience a larger diversity in their natural local surroundings. Most species have a better life in a slightly warmer climate. There is no reason to panic about the life on Earth.
