  •  Cornucopian Hell (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Eric Blair, Calamity Jean

    looks like the rich dumbing down the world population is leading us to hell.

    The world's ecosystems are being degraded at an unprecedented rate, and by 2050 humans will need at least two planets' worth of natural resources to live as they do now, the conservation group WWF warned today.

    The group warned that the consequences of the accelerating pressure on the Earth's natural systems were "both predictable and dire", and would mean the collapse of ecosystems and the erosion of the Earth's ability to support people.

    Biodiversity had already been damaged, it said, with terrestrial species declining by 31% between 1970 and 2003, freshwater species by 28% and marine species by 27%.
