    Humanity Has Wiped Out 60% of Animal Populations Since 1970

    IF (and this is a big IF) the headline is to be believed...

    https://science.slashdot.org/story/1...ons-since-1970

    Artem Tashkinov shares a report:

    The new estimate of the massacre of wildlife is made in a major report produced by WWF and involving 59 scientists from across the globe. It finds that the vast and growing consumption of food and resources by the global population is destroying the web of life, billions of years in the making, upon which human society ultimately depends for clean air, water and everything else. Many scientists believe the world has begun a sixth mass extinction, the first to be caused by a species -- **** sapiens. Other recent analyses have revealed that humankind has destroyed 83% of all mammals and half of plants since the dawn of civilisation and that, even if the destruction were to end now, it would take 5-7 million years for the natural world to recover. Tanya Steele, chief executive at WWF, said: "We are the first generation to know we are destroying our planet and the last one that can do anything about it."
    If it is to be believed, perhaps Freedom, including Economic Freedom which must also include Freedom from Over Consumption of everything, would also include Freedom to live a touch more humbly by ones own choice, and hopefully Freedom for ALL LIFE to not be destroyed by Marxist Consumerism?

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    Once again, the answer is more people. More people will solve this.

    It will not be solved. We'll keep going and screw ourselves and the planet.

    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."

    There's definitely problems, but the way the media is portraying this is, well, a bit biased at best, intellectually dishonest, at worst: https://www.theatlantic.com/science/...s-1970/574549/

    It's alarming, but it's being mischaracterized.

    Except as to the rule of appointment, the United States have an indefinite discretion to make requisitions for men and money; but they have no authority to raise either by regulations extending to the individual citizens of America.

    My thoughts are that these are the same sorts of folks who thought we were running out of oil, or that New York City would be under water by 2014 or any of the other absurd things that they say that they are never held to account for. Their models are not facts. Their bias is evident. Their estimations are silly.

    Politically motivated neo-conservationists. That is: conserve plants; exterminate humanity.

    I suppose human suffering and life expectancy should be retarded back to 5000 BC and all would be right in the world.

    21,000 animal populations are monitored for time series data gathered from a variety of sources (articles, journals, etc.)

    57 million plus square miles on earth (or one animal population monitored for every 2,700 square miles).

    We have two years to form a global initiative, they say.

    I say they have no real idea of what they are talking about and their facts are guesstimations gathered from faulty data. And that's even ignoring their premise that humans are solely responsible for this "massacre."
