'Dangerous' Decline in Biodiversity Threatening Humanity's Wellbeing Worldwide

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

From failures to combat global warming to pollution and the exploitation of natural resources, human activity is significantly contributing to a worldwide and "dangerous" decline in biodiversity, jeopardizing nature's ability to benefit to people's wellbeing, according to a major study published Friday.

We must act to halt and reverse the unsustainable “misuse” of nature.

Close,

How about, Subhumans destroy the Earth for profits.

“Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone” – Joni Mitchell, “Big Yellow Taxi”

Every 24 hour period, roughly 200 more species go extinct right now. The numbers will add up over the decades.

My mother had Alzheimer’s. She didn’t miss a few brain cells at first, but toward the end she had no idea why she was cooped up in a strange room with strangers, and she’d scream for help.

When species diversity goes extinct, your great-grandkids will understand in spades someday. Don’t go there!

You’re on that moving train right now.

It’s too bad that our country steals from those here at home and kills others elsewhere. We will consume the planet at all costs. Sorry.


#9

Stabilize population growth. The way human population is expanding, the basic consumption/needs of the crush of humanity is pushing our planet to the brink. There must be some truth to “Carrying capacity”,and I believe we must start paying heed to it, and right now.


#11

Almost,

How about: Evil Subhumans destroy the Earth for profits whilst everybody goes shopping.


#12

Earth Destroys Greedy Ignorant Ingrates


#13

I’m afraid Humanity is sealing it’s own Death Warrant. People are just realizing this a bit too late.


#14

Yes, the Earth and habitat will be here long after the last human perishes. It just won’t be a livable habitat for most life forms. As the Donald would say, “very sad!”


#15

Oh, by the way, the gal/guy that replied to me above seems to be from a fossil fuel troll farm. They’re pushing gratuitous “geoengineering” made out of whole cloth from the troll farm. You will never find any bit or factoid whatsoever that’s either specific or the least bit useful for solving climate change if you go to their funny site.

Know that small-scale Arctic remediation is a real possibility.


#16

With “leaders”–Drumpf being the prime example–who are ideology-driven, our species will soon be joining the many other species now going extinct.


#17

MUST but WON’t!!


#18

IT WON’T HAPPEN!! Stabilization WILL occur–once our species makes its GRAND EXIT!!


#20

Well, who knows. But I hope you’re wrong, and somehow people begin to see the need to slow population growth. But You may indeed be right and we’re on our way out the door. Mother Nature can only tolerate so much…


#21

Every species that goes extinct is a further reminder of humanity’s future, a future that seems to be more and more likely every day.


#22

Climate Change has gone nonlinear.

Citizens have not controlled the nation’s natural resources or use of them – Elites/wealthy have.

Citizens did not set patterns of wholesale pollution across the nation – Elites/wealthy have.

Citizens did not destroy mass transportation and refuse to restore/replace it – Elites/wealthy have.

Citizens do not use 80% of our oil – the MIC which profits Elites/wealthy have.

Citizens do not use 80% of our water – businesses which profit Elites/wealthy have.

There has long been control of our people’s government and our patriarchal societies by Elites/
wealthy.

And this nation was, after all, created to benefit Elites/wealthy from the very beginning.

Thank Our Founders for that – you remember those guys you were taught to esteem and honor
in your grammar schools?

Same guys who were murdering the native people here – and enslaving Africans here.


#24

There can only be so many birds in the sky –

There can only be so many ducks on a pond –

Overpopulation benefits Elites/wealthy in creating CHEAPER and CHEAPER labor.


#25

Agreed, it certainly does
