I keep hearing how important all this economic crisis is, but have we forgotten about the ecosystem of this earth?

news.bbc.co.uk...


The global economy is losing more money from the disappearance of forests than through the current banking crisis, according to an EU-commissioned study.
It puts the annual cost of forest loss at between $2 trillion and $5 trillion.


This along with mass extinctions

www.well.com...


Human beings are currently causing the greatest
mass extinction of species since the extinction of
the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. If present trends
continue one half of all species of life on earth will
be extinct in less than 100 years, as a result of
habitat destruction, pollution, invasive species,
and climate change.


and to top it off the oceans are becoming more acidic

news.bbc.co.uk...

so just remember, as this idea we named "Money" begins to loose ground and fall, there are more important things going on on this earth that deserve our attention.

this life of excess is at an end.

That is some very gloomy news.
Thanks for putting the cherry on top.
Would not have it any other way around here.

the life of our planet is being torn apart and raped and more people want to talk about some crazy ladies prediction of some aliens comming to earth, instead of talking about true things that are happening right now!!

Agreed. After Oct. 14th, maybe the intelligent ATS users who are spending all their time looking at anomalies on Google Earth and listening to channelers can start using their time and energies on understanding and spreading the knowledge of all the crises going on instead of hoping for close encounters.

Life is multifaceted for some of us... it is a diamond whose numerous reflections are challenged only by how each individual can reflect upon it.

We can reflect on the all the crisis going on and ponder a Mediums refections and more... all at the same time. It is not that difficult a stretch for some of us.

Thank you OP. Starred and flagged.

Yeah I remember reading that on BBC News website. It's a sad to think that it won't stop because the greed of the mighty dollar means more. When is enough enough? When all has been lost and nothing remains what good will the mighty dollar be then? We are capable of being better than this yet we continue to be destuctive. We are poisoning our home, our planet and all that live on it, including ourselves. When someone screams about it they are called fanatics. What type of wakeup call do folks need before they realise the dire mistakes? When it's too late it seems. I for one don't want to see that happen.

apparently it takes CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX, BBC, and everyother corporate new organizations to talk about it non stop (i.e. the bailout/stocks falling) and continue to drill it down peopls throats that its a big deal,

WHEN in all actuallity, its only a big deal to them, because regular people dont have millions invested in the stock market, and regular people arnt the ones controlling the credit market. Its these corporate ran and owned news organizations that are feeling the tightening belt, and in turn tell the people "YOU ARE FEELING IT TOO"

when all this economic crisis gets sorted out (by the same folks who put us into this mess mind you) the topic of the enviroment crashing will get no attention, and that is really fuking sad.

Oceans Ten Times More Acidic Than Thought
increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere may make Earth's oceans more acidic faster than previously thought—unbalancing ecosystems in the process, a new study says.

news.nationalgeographic.com...

still our world is falling apart but the powers that be make us worry about financial issues instead of things that are killing our planet

I really believe that much of this is because less developed nations are now heading towards an industrial age...for one obvious example, China now has higher resource demands to maintain its current level of productivity, which was much different 50 years ago.
