Biological Annihilation And The Sixth Mass Extinction

Share

Source: Resilience

Human beings are now waging war against life itself as we continue to destroy not just individual lives, local populations and entire species in vast numbers but also the ecological systems that make life on earth possible.

By doing this we are now accelerating the sixth mass extinction event in earth’s history and virtually eliminating any prospect of human survival.

In a recently published scientific study ‘Biological annihilation via the ongoing sixth mass extinction signaled by vertebrate population losses and declines’ the authors Gerardo Ceballos, Paul R. Ehrlich and Rodolfo Dirzo document the accelerating nature of this problem.

“Earth’s sixth mass extinction is more severe than perceived when looking exclusively at species extinctions… That conclusion is based on analyses of the numbers and degrees of range contraction… using a sample of 27,600 vertebrate species, and on a more detailed analysis documenting the population extinctions between 1900 and 2015 in 177 mammal species.” Their research found that the rate of population loss in terrestrial vertebrates is “extremely high” – even in “species of low concern”.

One Response to Biological Annihilation And The Sixth Mass Extinction

    These are a few of the many "Ghost cities" films I've watched since early 2011.  Follow up films often indicate that these hamster cage cites are haphazardly built by Chinese mafia cartels, and often exist for many years with neither commercial nor residential tenancy.

    No matter how glorious these cities may appear, many buildings are already crumbling into ruin.  Land development cartels are not effectively controlled by the alleged "totalitarian" governments of China, because Chinese business interests have indebted themselves on the "sure bet" of eventual profits.

    Regardless of the finely sifted narratives offered by official media, foreign investment companies have no intention of paying off the attached costs of massive debts.  When pressed, they simply file bankruptcy through various international bank settlement mechanisms, and life goes on…

    Perpetual construction in Africa, Southeast Asia, South America, Europe and even in the U.S.? Yes
    Solar farms that are not even green friendly? Yes
    Oil fracking even though it's counter profitable? Yes
    End in sight? No"
