whatever happens happens all we can do is work to stop them from dying not much you or me can do about it except not hunt them.
We kill more organisms indirectly rather than directly. The current environmental crisis is due to our negligence and general apathy for the Earth's health. Obviously there are people that aim to save our planet; but, I think it's safe to say that most people couldn't care less about what happens to life on Earth. Granted that it doesn't impact their lives, of course. I think we waste so much, because that behavior has been normalized in society. In essence, "It's just what we do." I don't think we can morally allow a species's extinction when we're likely responsible to begin with. We're beyond our hunter-gather stage in our evolution, and it's no longer really necessary. So, let's progress as a species instead of regress as a wasteful society. That's just my opinion, and I probably seem a bit spiteful but it's okay.

Definition of a "vegetarian" is equal to a "bad hunter."

What i meant was just that people like me can't do much i try to do as little harm as possible i don't litte etc.

The whole planet needs to make a move i alone nor you can make a difference but as a whole we can.


that's why i support the use of cars via electricity that are solar powered > Fuel and many other resources.

All species do and will go extinct. Part of the natural cycle. Including us unless we are wise enough. For us to save species is as natural as nature letting some go extinct. The universe is indifferent to the whole process.

When you look at the number of species that have gone extinct, it's really just business as usual.

Besides, we also protect animals from extinction. Cats, dogs, cows, sheep, pigs, chickens etc. won't be going extinct any time soon.

Well, if we're talking about what could happen, 100% of all species on earth could become extinct. And if we're talking about what has happened, then 99% of all species have gone extinct already. That said, I recycled a cardboard box a couple of months ago, so I'm pretty sure it's not my fault.

75% lost, is on the order the dinosaurs extinction. Those were not good times. It would probably be a good idea to do something about that. Or do you need to literal apocalypse?

Everyone dies eventually so I guess we don't have to worry about murder. They were going to die anyways.

Also we can push for more support renewable resources, and environmental responsibility. You have a vote, and a wallet.

The apathy in this thread is so annoying.

Luckily, even after 250 years of professionals documenting thousands of new plants and animals every year, the rate at which new species are discovered remains relatively stable. Somewhere between 15,000 and 18,000 new species are identified each year, with about half of those being insects.Jun 1, 2015

Once again, listening to a dying dinosaur like CNN will get just get you extinct.

I find the 'fuck it' attitude in this thread to be utterly disgusting. Everyone acts like nothing effects them, until it does, and their distrust of everything that isn't right in front of them caused them to realize that logic has objectivity to it. And a lot of smart people tell us things that are worth listening to. Then suddenly their meaningless apathy means little anymore.

Yah Know it's funny, plastic damage on the environment isn't something that's even debated, it's seen in the wild all over, but that doesn't stop ya'll from ignoring it to make your little political points.

Apathy is the best way to avoid responsibility.
