Pollution eats up 3 species every hour


timesofindia.indiatimes.com

LONDON: Three species every hour are being scraped off from earth due to pollution, it has been revealed at world conference to save wildlife.

It was 65 years ago that dinosaurs were eradicated from the earth and since then, no rate of extinction has been observed as yet.

But now a shock report on the destruction of natural habitats has alarmed many by indicating that one in four mammals are on the endangered list, which includes orangutans, chimpanzees and elephants.

Good find, OP. We have already started another Great Extinction. We are losing approximately 6 species per hour on this planet. I've done alot of research on this. Google Present Great Extinction or some such, you'll get lots of hits from scientific sources talking about this.
So, now, it appears, that HALF of those species extinction came from pollution. Interesting.
