In the News (Independent): “The world is hurtling towards the first mass extinction of animal life since the dinosaurs were wiped out 65 million years ago, according to the most comprehensive survey of wildlife ever carried out.
“By 2020, the populations of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and other vertebrate species are on course to have fallen by more than two-thirds over a period of just 50 years, the Living Planet report found.
“The current rate of extinction is about 100 times faster than is considered normal – greater than during some of the previous five mass extinctions in the Earth’s history.
“While the dinosaurs probably died out because a giant meteor hit the planet, just one species is the cause of the current problems: humans. …
“Dr Mike Barrett, director of science and policy at WWF-UK, said: ‘For the first time since the demise of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, we face a global mass extinction of wildlife.
“‘We ignore the decline of other species at our peril – for they are the barometer that reveals our impact on the world that sustains us.
“‘Humanity’s misuse of natural resources is threatening habitats, pushing irreplaceable species to the brink and threatening the stability of our climate.’”
My Comment: This situation can change only through the cooperation of the world governments, and this is an impossible! We deliberately are leading ourselves to annihilation. Our egoism is killing us right before our very eyes! Our only hope is using the method of the wisdom of Kabbalah, which tells us how to reveal the positive force in nature and how to balance our egoism with it. But who will listen?
