This article right here fell into my lap in the early morning hours and quite frankly, opened my eyes a little bit more as to how serious the next coming few years are going to be. This is a perfect example of how we are currently, as a species, on the verge of destructing our ecosystem which will mean the extinction of humanity and other kingdoms of life. Many people have been saying for years that this was the path that we are on and now the media and our world leaders are FINALLY admitting it. What exciting times we are in. Welcome to planet Earth 2010.

Here are my thoughts on some quotes from the article:
“Eight years ago, governments pledged to reduce the rate of biodiversity loss by 2010, but the pledge will not be met. The expansion of human cities, farming and infrastructure is the main reason.”
I think that these statements right here give us a clear example of our selfishness and ignorance towards the Earth that we inhabit. We as a race are too ignorant of our destructive ways and it is leading us on the path to extinction. We are killing the very entity that gives us life: Mother Earth. When I think of this situation it reminds of cancer. How does cancer work? It is greedy and it is ignorant towards it’s future. Cancer infects, multiplies rapidly and then starts to destroy the organism that allows it to grow. The human body. Cancer most often ends up destroying the body it inhabits, in turn, destroying itself. In some instances people who get cancer become very ill but then gain the courage and strength to change their thoughts, to beat it through mind power and external treatments and end up being cured. I view the human race to be in this situation. It may be a sad thing to say but it’s the truth. We are like cancer to the planet right now and Mother Earth needs our help. She is just as alive as we are and she is definitely strong enough to cure herself of an illness. If we’re considered the disease, what is our fate if we don’t change very soon? You do the math…Remember, LOVE heals all…With love we can heal our Mother.
“Mr Ban is due to say that human expansion is wiping out species at about 1,000 times the “natural” or “background” rate, and that “business as usual is not an option”.”
This is a statement that is telling us that we need to change our ways and act NOW. Business as usual means the way we currently live in society. Do you understand the degree of seriousness that this message is portraying? We can no longer sustain life on this planet by continuing to live the way we live.
“The rate of species loss leads some biologists to say that we are in the middle of the Earth’s sixth great extinction, the previous five stemming from natural events such as asteroid impacts.”
…This one speaks for itself.
“The UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) was agreed at the Rio Earth Summit of 1992, alongside the climate change convention. But it acquired its key global pledge during the Johannesburg summit of 2002, when governments agreed to achieve a “significant reduction” in the rate of biological diversity by 2010. Conservation organisations acknowledge that despite some regional successes, the target is not going to be met; some analyses suggest that nature loss is accelerating rather than decelerating.”
We should be DEMANDING answers from them as to why nothing has been done. Our world leaders have been in control for a very long time and clearly aren’t doing a great job of sustaining an equilibrium in regards to human life on this planet. The people have the power. Stand up and ask WHY.
“The loss of this beautiful and complex natural diversity that underpins all life on the planet is a serious threat to humankind now and in the future.”
…Again this speaks for itself.
All in all, I did not want to bring this article to light in order to bash or judge anyone. I simply wanted to share it because many people are not aware of the crisis that humanity faces at this point in history. To me, this is a HUGE wake-up call. When will the masses start to care? Does a disaster have to happen before we start to wake-up? I sure hope not…
Let this article really sink in. My heart goes out to all kingdoms of life on this planet and to Mother Gaia. Evolution is amongst us. A Collective Evolution.
