Humans are killing everything

Its alarming. And I feel helpless and hopeless.

Nearly one third of the world's wildlife has been lost since 1970

This is the world we are leaving for our children. I am frightened.

The current extinction rate is 10,000 times faster than the biological norm recorded in the fossil record.

"You'd have to go back to the extinction of the dinosaurs to see a decline as rapid as this," ZSL scientist Jonathan Loh, editor of the report, said. "In terms of human times-scales we may be seeing things change relatively slowly, but a decline of 30 percent in the space of a single generation is unprecedented in human history."

Very sad, and hard to swallow hearing/reading about it because it is almost spinning out of our control really. :o(
