It’s frightening but true: Our planet is now in the midst of its sixth mass extinction of plants and animals — the sixth wave of extinctions in the past half-billion years. We’re currently experiencing the worst spate of species die-offs since the loss of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.
Unlike past mass extinctions, caused by events like asteroid strikes, volcanic eruptions, and natural climate shifts, the current crisis is almost entirely caused by us — humans.
In fact, 99 percent of currently threatened species are at risk from human activities, primarily those driving habitat loss, introduction of exotic species, and global warming.
Because the rate of change in our biosphere is increasing, and because every species’ extinction potentially leads to the extinction of others bound to that species in a complex ecological web, numbers of extinctions are likely to snowball in the coming decades as ecosystems unravel. (source)
How can someone put greed before the existence of the world. If you think long term, your kids will be extinct, or your grandchildren, and yet some do it for the paper of value, which is utterly funny because the paper itself comes from the things that we destroy: trees.
Nature doesn’t really need us, humans. We need nature.
As nature falls, we fall. And yet, every day we destroy it for material purposes. It’s like cutting a small part of our fingers, on the long run, our whole hand!
