Humans are driving one million species to extinction


Up to one million plant and animal species face extinction, many within decades, because of human activities, says the most comprehensive report yet on the state of global ecosystems.

Without drastic action to conserve habitats, the rate of species extinction — already tens to hundreds of times higher than the average across the past ten million years — will only increase, says the analysis. The findings come from a United Nations-backed panel called the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).

According to the report, agricultural activities have had the largest impact on ecosystems that people depend on for food, clean water and a stable climate. The loss of species and habitats poses as much a danger to life on Earth as climate change does, says a summary of the work, released on 6 May.

The analysis distils findings from nearly 15,000 studies and government reports, integrating information from the natural and social sciences, Indigenous peoples and traditional agricultural communities. It is the first major international appraisal of biodiversity since 2005. Representatives of 132 governments met last week in Paris to finalize and approve the analysis.

Are we ourselves close to extinction ?
What are mass extinctions, and what causes them?

A million species? Name 20 in this century.. If we are driving a million into extinction, then naming 20 from this century should be a piece of cake. And don't include species that have evolved to such a specialized state that they can only live in a 10 acre area of land....species like that have evolved to go extinct....

99% of species that have ever lived on earth are now extinct. And unless you are going to kill yourself and convince a few billion other people to do the same, there really isn’t much we can do. That is life and extinction, deal with it.

I guess it's always going to be our fault for everything.
Species have had mass extinctions at certain periods of time on Earth.
The biggest culprit has been the 5 or 6 ice ages.
So why don't you liberals go and blame the ice ages and maybe try and
extort money from them, leave me alone.

Oh.....all of your studies? Go follow the fucking money on who funds them.
If the studies came up with anything different than what their agenda is, they
would be out of a job. So no surprise there.

We could be prepared for an asteroid - we have the technology - but we'd rather have 900 military bases and 7 wars going on to spend the money on.

Or as Neil explains it's really a global cause so everyone should be involved.....except that would require cooperation.

So far the responses have been
That is because your first post is absurd, that YOU failed to answer SSDD reasonable request for EVIDENCE, you didn't provide any support for the absurd 1 Million extinctions claims.

This crap has been addressed before and the end result was humiliation, it appears that is your turn now......

Your Post 4 link, destroys your post One baloney, your humiliation has already started, suggest that you drop this massive lie and stick with protecting the few that are proven to be vulnerable to extinction, through various measures.

Lying or misleading people harms the drive to preserve the environment, because it promotes backlash that results into increasing indifference to future extinction claims.

Run with the truth, and drop the sensationalism!

Maybe some Carlin rant will wake you up over the extinction bullcrap?
