I have to say, Dr. Albers is discussing these things as though this were such a matter-of-fact thing: "... This can lead to the end of all life on earth".... What's the big deal, right??
Well, for one, Hashem promised that He would never again flood the earth as in the days of Noah. Second, we do believe that Mashiach is coming, and a period of great peace and joy will be ushered in when he comes - for the surviving remnant of all these cataclysms and catastrophes. We only have to make sure we are part of that remnant, and the conditions for that are pretty clear, spelled out in our various scriptures.
At the same time, I can understand why I was feeling so bad yesterday; read the news in Jerusalem and in the rest of Israel: innocent people savagely murdered, at greater and greater frequency, with greater and greater savagery, by the subhumans living in this country, the ones screaming "Allah Hu Akbar" while ending the lives of precious souls. Today it was in Jerusalem, the other day it was in the Shomron, every day a new event: tragic, sad, and so avoidable if only the PTB in this country were doing their job, and treated those animals the way they deserve to be treated...Dream on.... We need Mashiach NOW!
So all I can say is: Yisrael Betach BaShem! People of Israel, have faith in G-d!
(And nothing like Tehillim, in particular the Tikkun Klali which I have just discovered in depth, to keep us going. )
