Why are you killing us all?
Posted On August 9, 2021
Forests are disappearing from the face of the earth.
They’re dying at an alarming rate.
As of 2018, more than 8 million acres of land in the United States were in the process of being cleared for agricultural use.
This includes more than half of the land that once belonged to Native Americans.
In 2017 alone, nearly 30 million acres were cleared for farming.
In addition to the land being cleared, habitat is being lost for native plants and animals.
In the process, we’re destroying the natural systems that sustain life on our planet.
To be clear, clearing and killing for agricultural purposes is not a sustainable way to live.
That said, the environment is at risk.
We’re seeing more and more evidence that the use of pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals are contributing to a drastic decline in native wildlife populations.
In California, for example, the number of California condors is on the decline.
The condor population has dropped by 70 percent in the last decade.
That decline has been linked to the use and widespread use of neonicotinoids, a class of chemicals that can disrupt honeybees’ honey production and honey bees’ ability to use their nests to nest.
As more of the world’s population is using pesticides, more and higher doses of these chemicals will be used.
This will result in the disappearance of native species and the species that have adapted to survive.
And as we lose these species, we’ll lose biodiversity as well.
In a time of increasing global climate change, the extinction of these species is especially important to us as we face increasing threats from climate change.
In 2018, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) estimated that at least half of our planet’s ecosystems are in “exceptional” or “very threatened” condition.
And that includes our forests.
According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), there are around 8.4 million species of plants and insects in the world, and there are at least 3.5 billion species of birds, mammals, and fish.
If all these species were wiped out tomorrow, they would account for one-quarter of all land mammals, birds, and fishes in the Earth’s oceans.
If every species of bird, mammal, and mammal-like animal were to be wiped out today, the oceans would be home to a whopping 6.7 billion species.
But these numbers are just a snapshot of what we’ve seen in the past century.
We can’t just wait for the planet to go extinct.
We need to take action.
Here’s how: First, we need to make it a priority to save and restore native ecosystems.
In many cases, these are landscapes that were once inhabited and inhabited again, often for thousands of years.
These areas are disappearing at a much faster rate than previously thought, and the effects of these changes will be felt for generations to come.
Protecting these places means protecting the biodiversity that has been there for hundreds of thousands of decades.
Protect our native species in these areas will be key to saving the environment.
We must also make it clear that our primary responsibility is to our children and grandchildren.
There is no better way to do this than by providing them with a healthy environment, a healthy diet, and safe and affordable medicines.
If we want to ensure our children have the best possible future, we must invest in our children’s future.
We’ve also got to help them develop the skills to make the changes they need to protect our natural places.
The best way to accomplish this is by working together to develop the best education system in the World.
To this end, we have to educate people about how to make sustainable choices about their food, how to use energy more effectively, how much land they can and cannot use, how healthy they are, and more.
We also have to invest in developing sustainable energy systems that are environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
These technologies, in combination with conservation practices, can help to save our planet from climate catastrophe and the impacts of extreme weather.
We have to also work with our partners and the private sector to ensure that the natural world we share is preserved.
There are many more opportunities for people to get involved in preserving our natural landscapes and ecosystems.
For example, some of our most iconic natural places are found in our local communities, where we can take pride in our connection to nature and how our local economies have changed over the years.
There’s also a growing need for a more integrated approach to wildlife management.
We see the loss of wild species and their habitats as a threat to our ecosystems and to human health.
And in our efforts to save these natural areas, we also need to find ways to conserve wildlife in the wild.
For instance, the Forest Service has recently established an endangered species list that includes grizzly bears, wolves, cougars, bobcats, and bobcat populations that are at risk of disappearing from their natural habitats.
The list will help us
