Humanity is in the existential danger zone, study confirms

The Earth’s climate has always changed. All species eventually become extinct.

    Í belive that over consumption due to consumerism has damaged our planet more than the population explosion. We strip the earth of everything but how much much of those resources are just wasted. Fukashimas’ pouring radioactive water into our oceans. Over fishing of our oceans. Oil spills in our oceans have wreaked havoc on the flora and fauna that live there. Damning up rivers have destroyed fish breeding grounds. The worlds bee populations are dying. Bird, bats and many other animals around the world are in huge decline. The Earths alarm bells are ringing.
