The headline might be more dramatic than the original: “Species’ extinction threat grows”. But it’s more to the point. If they are dying faster, nature is changing faster. Humans can not adapt to an environment much different from the one we inhabit, especially in terms of temperature, moisture, oxygen. But mostly, we’ll just run out of food. Get the big picture.
Our best chance of averting an ecological crisis is to eat less, consume less and reverse population growth voluntarily.
