I do expect replies saying "climate change isn't real and you're an idiot."
Climate change is real and you're not an idiot.
Sorry, but that had to be said...
My question to you, ravenshadow13, is what would you have humans do? You state that we affect other species negatively. This is true enough. However,
so do other species affect each other negatively. Unlike other species, we also have positive effects on our animal co-inhabitants.
At one time the eagles went extinct in this area. Now eagles soar aloft... thanks to a conservation program that released them back into the wild.
How many shelters across the country rescue animals form certain death?
How many zoos are actively engaged in conservation?
How many birds and other wildlife are saved each year by concerned individuals?
How many animals are protected species, illegal to hunt or trap?
Now ask yourself how many other species consciously do anything to preserve biodiversity. The answer is none; all other species are interested in
their own survival and their own survival only.
In short, I do not dispute you on the fact that our actions have consequences on other species... I only ask what you believe should be done about
One other note: 'Climate change' is to me (and to many other who frequent these boards) synonymous with 'Global Warming'. You did mention that
'climate change' was the reason for the possible extinction of these animals.
As a matter of fact, you put it in the thread title!
