This article began in MOTHER JONES then was reprinted  in NEWSWEEK ,so much the better as it will get a whole lot more attention 

 

so I am not the only one who sees multiple environmental issues under challenge at the same time , and starts to query the overall directions of things.

 

my links quiet often don't work that well and the article title is the same as the thread.

woops I just did a long reply   ,pressed post and none of it took

 

 

the concerns are multiple 

 

  • declining numbers of amphibians, dolphins,porpoises,sharks and rays
  • a much lower population of African grey parrots
  • plunging giraffe population
  • decline in big cats
  • the persecution of rhinos and elephants
  • documented  overall  species decline in the IUCN red list and the WWF LIVING PLANET REPORT
  • of special interest is the open access article  G Ceballos,P Ehrlich et all  ACCELERATED MODERN HUMAN INDUCED SPECIES LOSSES June 2015 SCIENCE ADVANCES  
  • the overall rate of species loss is 100 times above what would naturally  occur on a very cautious estimate

I really wonder what is humanity doing to themselves  and they must do more to reverse this

 

this is having a serious impact on humans , bee numbers who are needed to pollinate food crops , are seriously dropping and no one understands  why

 

some might like to think of a technology dominated landscape as a paradise ,my thoughts ate strongly in the other direction

yes all life is interconnected

 

on one including humanity  can do anything which has a  isolated impact 

 

the article  just began  with a short but important list of species at list 

 

the most obvious additions but not the only ones to add would be

 

  • the Amazon rainforest  and its interconnected community
  • coral reef interconnected communities
  • Asian elephants
  • all the great apes

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.
