Memes all you have? Can't even name 20 species this century when you are claiming that millions are threatened?

From the OP, that you obviously didn't read......
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.

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?

Thank you, Tom Steyer.

Since 99.9% of all the species that have ever lived on earth are now extinct, it stands to reason that all species that live on earth face extinction...the odds for escaping it are exceedingly small...

Your report is pseudoscience intended to fool people who lack the intellectual wattage to do a bit of fact checking...they claim millions but can't name 20 that have actually gone extinct this century? How stupid does someone have to be to take that sort of bullshit seriously?

So write a letter to the editor of that article if it bothers you so much.:71:

Doesn't bother me that people write bullshit...it bothers me that uneducated and stupid people believe it...which is why I am writing you. What makes you so stupid that you would believe such bullshit?

I thought species were supposed to go extinct? ... "survival of the fittest" if you believe in evolution ... I know it's a shame that the Columbia white-tailed deer died out, but them mule deer sure were quick to move in ... obviously the mule deer are better adapted to the changing environment and it's best for the mule deer that the white-tails are gone ... chicken, cows and pigs are ubiquitous over almost all the Earth's land surface ...

A list of animals gone extinct in the 20th Century is available on Wikipedia ... Lost Animals of the 20th Century - Wikipedia ...
