Humans Are Speeding Extinction and Altering the Natural World at an


#1

This makes for sobering reading.

A 1,500-page report by the United Nations, compiled by hundreds of international experts and based on thousands of scientific studies, is the most exhaustive look yet at the decline in biodiversity across the globe and the dangers that creates for human civilization. “Its conclusions are stark. In most major land habitats, from the savannas of Africa to the rain forests of South America, the average abundance of native plant and animal life has fallen by 20 percent or more, mainly over the past century. With the human population passing 7 billion, activities like farming, logging, poaching, fishing and mining are altering the natural world at a rate ‘unprecedented in human history.’” Discuss the implications of the report here.

The problems are the people. If the people who did these things were prevented from doing this a good percentage of the 8 Billion would die. This would stop the “decline in biodiversity across the globe”.

If we want a world like it was before we discovered technology and medical advances we must give up a lot of what we now have, all in the name of biodiversity across the globe.

I think we just need to get the ability to solve our problems with technology and AIs. Because we could not get everyone to agree on much of anything we will do it my way.
