Look at nature, there are hundreds if not thousands of examples around the world of cataclysm, on a scale man will never be able to achieve, yet the earth and life persist and remain.
- Half the world’s tropical forests have been cleared or degraded. Every hour, at least 4,500 acres of forest fall to chain saws, machetes, flames, or bulldozers. Population growth, poverty, and unequal access to land are among the major causes of deforestation (Forestry Department Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations).
- The net loss of the world’s forests is estimated at 7.3 million hectares (18 million acres) per year (Forestry Department Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations).
- Worldwide, 1.6 billion people rely on forest products for all or part of their livelihoods (World Resources Institute and Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations).
- The world's wetlands are shrinking: 1/2 of them have been destroyed in the past 100 years alone as a result of human population increase and development…
- the USA has already lost some 54% = 87 million ha of its original wetlands: 87% to agricultural development and 8% to urban development;
- Italy has lost about 94% of its wetlands, while Ireland has lost an equivalent amount of its peat bogs;
- 1950–1985: The Netherlands has lost 55% of wetlands in only 35 years!
- A harmful algal bloom (HAB) is an algal bloom that causes negative impacts to other organisms via production of natural toxins, mechanical damage to other organisms, or by other means. HABs are often associated with large-scale marine mortality events and have been associated with various types of shellfish poisonings.
