    from the article: "The world’s 7.6 billion people represent just 0.01% of all living things..."

    That statement is amazingly stupid. Insect populations alone for the world top ten quintillion (10,000,000,000,000,000,000) individual insects (from here). In one human being the vast majority of the living cells are bacteria, not human.

    imho this piece seems to be written by and for non-thinkers.
