If you condensed the earth's lifespan into twenty four hours , one full day , than humans have been on planet earth for , 3 seconds. In three seconds we have increased the extinction of many species , torn our forests down , caused more pollution than ever before , cut down more trees than ever before - Prince EA



We have increased the extinction of animals by 1000 times the normal rate, in 10 to a 100 years every beloved animal in every children's books is predicted to go existent, lions gone , rhinos gone, tigers gone , gorillas gone, elephants gone, polar bears gone.



To save the plant, is to save us. Whatever you fight for Racism, Poverty, Feminisn, Gay rights or any type of Equality, it will not matter in the least, because if we do not all work toghther to save the enviroment, we will be eqaully extinct

I didn't watch the videos first; I'm a scientist.

Global warming will not extinguish humanity. Contra Bernie Sanders, the earth will indeed still be habitable in 100 years.

Global warming will cause bad things, yes, potentially displace a ton of people, and cause wars, but we'll absolutely still be here. Further, though solar and wind can't do nearly as much as they're vaunted to do, we are indeed making new technologies. And nuclear power is still here - and the solution everyone is ignoring because they're foolishly afraid of it.

I'm skeptical of the animal prediction. And though many gorillas are now gone, only one left a hole in all of our hearts.

Heard it all before.

Didn't care for this type of presentation.

I agree with some of it disagree with some of it.

Not going to get into all of it but we do need to work to be better custodians of this earth. There's a lot of good conservationists out there but one or two countries can only do so much on their own. Illegal hunting in Africa has to be dealt with by Africa. Chinese buying snake oil via rhino horns and ivory has to be dealt with in China. We all have our parts to do. We do need to be a little more responsible and do our parts. What's scary is thinking how that extinct animal might have helped to unlock the cure for cancer or something. You never know and once they're gone there's usually no going back......then again maybe DNA and cloning can play a part in bringing them back that's a whole different can of worms.
