i cant stand moths, they are soooooooo annoying, especially hovering around clothes, lights etc. this year has definitely less! maybe im swotting too many of them causing them be extinct?
So then, how does it feel to singlehandedly kill off a species?
well... maybe you shouldn't answer that. I'm sure somebody will mourn their loss.
I realise thats a joke, but never the less. Eventually folk will mourne the loss of even small creatures as these. The extinction of a species has impact all the way up the food chain. a moth or bug that pollinates a certain plant becomes extinct, less of that plant, less of the species that feed on them, less of the species that feed on those, and so on, all the way up to us.
Those who see no signaficance in our enviromental impact are fooling themselves. we change the world in so many ways that other species must adapt or die out. We are a destructive (self destructive too) race, we alter the enviroment to suit us instead of the other way round, and to hell with the other billion species that share the world. selfish @#$%^& we are!
