RESCUE ATTEMPT?

Inoculation giving endangered California frog shot at life,
Tahoe Daily Tribune, August 30, 2017.

Our relentless irresponsible growth Kills Nature with one hand, while we are pretending to save it with the other. The hand of destruction is much more powerful than that of healing. Wise policies... if you want to feel good while doing bad things...

 

The only way to "save the frogs" is to take the Corporate Growth Machine of Death out of political power and control, to restore our basic democratic values and processes. The "corporates" will continue to successfully do everything in their power to strip Man & Nature of our resouces until we finally remove bribery as the factor determining who has the power to control our politicians, our political parties, and ultimately, the fate of our environment, and our country.

As global temperatures rise, the world's lizards are disappearing
20 percent of all lizard species could be extinct by 2080
, researchers say,
May 13, 2010, American Association for the Advancement of Science

An extinction event of global proportions is already well underway, and it is rapidly picking up speed. A simple search of the limited "Science" articles linked on this site will show you that the birds are falling out of the Sky, fish are going belly-up in the world's waters, and land animals are rapidly disappearing.

I started a forum to track the general "progress" of this, the Anthropocene.
