ForestLady, I don't believe you're correct.

However, I do agree that Ecology needs to be taught in schools. If I hear one more person say how useless they think wasps or mosquitoes are, I may just have to freak out.

with the 'the-sky-is-falling' groups...
there may not be 10,000 species of frogs (for example)
but in their place there are turkey farms which provide habitats
for multi-millions of these fowl which would never survive out here
in the larger world of nature,
that line of thought can apply to pigs, sheep, chickens, cows & steers---
just to list some examples of an exponential growth of some species,(possibly to the detriment of those 'vanishing' species)
far beyond what would naturally sustain that number of those types of animals.
your thread, is thought provoking , but it already has way too many 'stars'...?where's loam on this issue?

Here is a great resource website for our ecological crisis. Its a non-for-profit group called One Planet, One Life & The Sixth Mass Extinction. It has a tremendous amount of information on the present Earth environment.

First of all, I haven't gone off the deep end.
Take your blinders off and actually read at least some of the more than 300 resources I provided that all say the same thing.
Scientists have been saying this for at least the last 10 years, but no one is reporting on this issue.
It's not what I'M saying, it's what most scientists believe, at least 80% of them, if not more.
