I try not to talk like a depressing environmentalist but this Millennium Ecosystem Assessment is just to big for the majority of the planets population to ignore.
According to the report:
- organisms are disappearing at 100 to 1,000 times the “background levels” seen in the fossil record
- a third of all amphibians, a fifth of mammals and an eighth of all birds are threatened with extinction
- some 35% of mangroves and about 20% of corals have gone.
