Half the Earth

Half the Earth | conservation & antipoaching | Scoop.it
Apart from the painful inequity of one species offering to give half the world to all the millions of others, I have to question that half will even be enough.  E. O. Wilson is supporting the idea that the current mass extinction can be stopped by reserving half the Earth for wildlife.

GR:  Climate scientists such as James Hansen (http://wp.me/p26kDO-7c2) and biologists such as E.O. Wilson (http://wp.me/p26kDO-7ZO) believe we are in the midst of an emergency.  More than climate change, we are reducing habitat through construction, farming, and grazing; we are aiding the takeover by invasive species (http://wp.me/p26kDO-4we), we are eliminating fresh water supplies for wildlife, and we are polluting the land, air, and water.  Where is the emergency response?
