Bird species vanish from UK due to climate change and habitat loss

Bird species vanish from UK due to climate change and habitat loss | GarryRogers Biosphere News | Scoop.it
Biodiversity across England continues to fall despite a landmark review of wildlife sites for the government in 2010 that called for major changes in habitat destruction and land use.
Garry Rogers's insight:
Human population growth, conversion of land to farms and cities, and rising temperatures are driving most species toward extinction. Naturalists are observing sinking populations around the world. As more populations reach zero, extinctions accelerate and will be roaring along by century end. They will not slow until only the most adaptable (weed) species remain. The progress of wildlife loss will eventually begin to cause human population decline. Whether or not our species escapes extinction in the centuries ahead, depends on rapid reversal of population growth and elimination of fossil fuel use. Such turns of events seem unlikely as the enormous wealth of the fossil-fuel companies and the owners of our industry and distribution systems have enthralled our leaders. So call or write your congressmen today. Let them know you will support them if they turn away from wealth and accept their responsibility to lead.

Garry Rogers's insight:

It is important to teach children that cruelty to animals is wrong. We have laws for adults who did not receive the lesson.  The laws protecting animals are not as severe as the ones that punish child abusers, but they are there and they should be enforced. PETA is handling the petition.

Garry Rogers's insight:

GR:  Nitrogen contamination of water occurs near farms. Added to pesticides, nitrogen from fertilizers makes the runoff from farms one of the top contributors to the great human-caused extinction of wildlife.
