that More than
Certainly Face Extinction"...
We are witnessing a worldwide environmental collapse, and nobody
seems to know how to stop it.
As you will see below, a
study that was just released (Hotspots
of Human Impact on Threatened Terrestrial Vertebrates) that looked at more than 5,000 species
of birds, mammals and amphibians discovered that nearly a quarter of
certainly face extinction".
Never before has our
society faced such a
massive collapse of life on a planetary scale,
and yet the vast majority of the population doesn't seem concerned
about what is happening.
Species after species is
being permanently wiped out, and most of us couldn't care less.
The time for action is now. According to this new
study, over 1,200 species will soon be extinct unless dramatic
action is taken.
The following comes from
More than 1,200
species globally face threats to their survival in more than 90%
of their habitat and "will almost certainly face extinction"
without conservation intervention, according to new research.
Scientists working with Australia's University of Queensland and
the Wildlife Conservation Society have mapped threats faced by
5,457 species of birds, mammals and amphibians to determine
which parts of a species' habitat range are most affected by
known drivers of biodiversity loss.
most affected biomes were in
southern Brazil, Malaysia, Indonesia,
India, Myanmar and Thailand.

Once these species are
gone, they will be gone forever.
And remember, this study from Australia only included larger
creatures such as birds, mammals and amphibians. The situation is
far more dire when we look at what is happening to the insect world.
The following is an
excerpt from my previous article entitled "Insect
Apocalypse - The Global Food Chain is Experiencing a Major
Extinction Event and Scientists Don't Know Why"…
telling us that we have entered "the sixth major extinction" in
the history of our planet.
A brand new survey of
73 scientific reports that was just released has come to the
conclusion that the total number of insects on the globe is
falling by 2.5 percent per year.
If we stay on this
current pace, the survey warns that there might not be "any
insects at all" by the year 2119.
And since insects are
absolutely critical to the worldwide food chain, that has
extremely ominous implications for all of us.
In case you are
wondering, humanity would not survive very long without insects. In
fact, it has been estimated that if all bees go extinct that most of
humanity will be wiped out within ten years.
The global food chain is literally dying right in front of our eyes,
and I cannot understand why more people are not deeply alarmed by
We are facing an unprecedented crisis in our oceans as well.
Researchers in Canada have discovered that levels of phytoplankton
have dropped by about 40 percent since 1950…
The tiny organisms,
phytoplankton, also gobble up
carbon dioxide to produce half the world's oxygen output -
equaling that of trees and plants on land.
But their numbers have dwindled since the dawn of the 20th
century, with unknown consequences for ocean ecosystems and the
Researchers at Canada's Dalhousie University say the global
population of phytoplankton has fallen about 40 percent since
our oceans would quickly become giant "dead zones", and at the pace
we are going we don't have too long before that will happen.
And the truth is that the frightening drop in phytoplankton levels
is already having a dramatic impact on the food chain.

quote from Chris Martenson
before, but it is worth sharing again…
means less thiamine being produced.
That means less
thiamine is available to pass up the food chain. Next thing you
know, there's a 70% decline in seabird populations.
This is something I've noticed directly and commented on during
my annual pilgrimages to the northern Maine coast over the past
30 years, where seagulls used to be extremely common and are now
practically gone. Seagulls!
Next thing you know, some other major food chain will be wiped
out and we'll get oceans full of jellyfish instead of actual
Are you starting to
understand where I am coming from?
Our planet is literally dying, and there is only a very, very
limited amount of time to do anything about it.
Meanwhile, western civilization is dying as well.
Paul Joseph Watson
has just produced the below video entitled "The Collapse of Western
Civilization", and it is perhaps the finest video that he has
created to date.
If you have not seen it
yet, I would encourage you to check it out:
In an accompanying
article, Watson listed some of the evidence that
our society is in the process of collapsing…

is long overdue.
Depression is at
its highest level ever. Drug addiction is at its highest
identifying as christians is at its lowest level ever.
Our culture provides us with NOTHING to believe in.
As usual, Watson is right
on the money. We have lost our values, we have no clear direction as
a society, and we are deeply, deeply miserable.
Just consider the
from the CDC…
The number of deaths
from alcohol, drugs and suicide in 2017 hit the highest level
since federal data collection started in 1999, according to an
analysis of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data by
two public health nonprofits.
The national rate for deaths from alcohol, drugs and suicide
rose from 43.9 to 46.6 deaths per 100,000 people in 2017, a 6
percent increase, the Trust for America's Health and the Well
Being Trust reported Tuesday.
Most people do not have a
reason to get out of bed in the morning. Without meaning and
purpose, most people drift aimlessly through life, and that
Time is running out for our exceedingly vacuous society. We are
literally destroying ourselves and everything around us, and here in
the western world we have completely lost our values.
We are on a road to
nowhere, and we will soon be overtaken by the consequences of our
very foolish actions.
