Another Inconvenient Truth?

Al Gore and company have generated a lot of publicity and done a lot of persuasion around the notions that climate change is largely the result of human behavior and that the results of climate change will be unpleasant, and more so if the build-up of GHGs is not limited. You could make precisely the same claims about species loss.  For more on that inconvenient truth see Edward O. Wilson’s little book, The Creation

According to endangeredspecie.com there are several reasons why some would say species are becoming endangered. Some would say it is not done by a certain species, but mostly dont by the human race. The human race destroys much of the habitat which kills their environment and pollutes the air and water in which they live. This problem cannot stop until the human race begins to protect and preserve our environment.

Natural changes tend to occur at a gradual pace, usually causing only a slight impact on individual species. However, when changes occur at a fast pace, there is little or no time for individual species to react and adjust to new circumstances. This can create disastrous results, and for this reason, rapid habitat loss is the primary cause of species endangerment.

This article just states that humans are the main cause of not only endangered species but endangering all wild life in general. Until we preserve our natural environment animals and plants will continue to diminish.

  1. There are no circumstances under which animal/plant life should be valued over human life. It may sould cruel and uncaring, but I just dont understand why people get so worked up about the loss of plant life! Plants are not “living beings” with souls or emotions, so what is the big deal? Platlife is a renewable resource on earth…there’s this little thing called gardening that is very helpful for this “dilemma”.

    And as for humans getting the blame for diminishing animal life, thats just unfare. Animals eat other animals and I think it is high time that the lions are held more accountable for the overindulgent antalope consumption! Those aligator types are really binging too…someone should really have a word with them about overdoing it on the cockatoo at snacktime!

  2. I agree completely. However, most people are unaware of the severity of the issue. I didn’t realize how bad it was until I started blogging about it. I think in this decade people are to busy worrying about advancing technology that they forget about preserving our wildlife.

  3. I don’t think humans should take the complete blame, but you have to agree that we are a large part of the problem. We continue to build homes which is taking away from their land. I think we need to preserve their land as well, it is there homes. As far as the plants, I don’t really care either. Oh, we don’t have that colorful type of plant anymore, so what, I’ll draw you one and lets call it even.
