I was in Antarctica in 1983 (sailor not scientist)when they were studying upper layer ozone. A few years later when that study was published many people didn't believe it. I think I sat through more lectures back then than when I went to college.
Nobody seems to talk about what they should do if the end were near. As for myself, I have several ex-girlfriends to look up. Or for more family oriented activities, show my young nephews what's up in the sky.
I certainly would not waste time belittling those of other beliefs. Those who make money off such things don't seem to act like it's going to end!
So, we'll compromise and close the toilet seat. Fire up the charcoal grill, put on some dark red steaks. Pile the ice cream on the apple pie. Set out the lawn chairs, and watch the astroid get bigger and bigger!
In the end just laugh as the Dolphins say;"Goodbye and thanks for all the fish!"
(one of my favorite lines)
