One in five vertebrates threatened by extinction
- Twenty years ago, nearly all the worldâ€™s nations agreed to significantly reduce the loss of biodiversity by 2010. (The United States signed the accord but, like other treaties, the Senate has not ratified it.) Well, itâ€™s 2010 and we are nowhere near that goal. While the Convention on Biological Diversity is currently meeting to update its targets for 2020, a new study released by Science says one-fifth of the worldâ€™s vertebrate species are threatened with extinction. But the good news is things would be a whole lot worse if we had done nothing at all.
It's OK, Sarah Palin and O'Donnell told NeoCon so. God gave us the world to do with as we please, anyway, why bother, this is the end times, so better pray and repent!
