By the end of the century half of all species will be extinct. Does that matter?

.... it matters to me :(

...heck I'm worried about polar bears, caribou, BEES... sparrows, Mulder.... You name it I'm worried.


one in four mammals, one in eight birds, one in three amphibians, one in three conifers and other gymnosperms are at risk of extinction.
our present course will lead to the extinction of half of all plant and animal species by 2100.
That's staggering!!!!!

bumping this, as I think this is very important... people should really pay attention to information like this... THIS is the war we should all be fighting... but on no... wars on terror get the attention... shows you actually were peoples priorities are...

If all these animals and other living things go extinct, you won't have a pot to pee in... never mind some stupid money wasting war machines used to kill people rather than save the world, it's Earth, it's plants and Animals...

...human beings are a selfish lot.

Right, I'm going back out into my garden to play... so naa :D

As the population of this planet increases...humans are encroaching on every habitat...not to mention our consumption rate. To the animals of this planet other than ourselves :D
we are like a disease that is spreading.

I am saddend by the fact that animals are becoming exinct at a staggering rate, victims of an over populated planet of humans

it's only natural that it comes back to bite us all in the arse :D

see...people matter most..that's the argument I hear...lowly animals...who cares? Unable to defend themselves from the onslaught of our civilization spreading out over this planet with a handful of people that really care and intend to do something about it. We the deep thinking species must come up with real viable solutions, before this chicken today - fethers tomorrow mentality comes back at us with devistating results. All animals matter and the insects as well. We share the planet with them and they as well have a right to exist.

George is ready for the next 'Ice Age.'



There was a report in the newspaper today, that botanists here in the UK have assembled a so called 'Bilion Seed Store.' The ideabeing that they will be able to contribute to replanting, after some so called 'global catastrophe.'

Should we be doing the same with DNA from Birds, Fish, and Mammals ?
