Threatened & Endangered Species
Man is a part of nature. We can not survive as a species if we continue to pollute and destroy our natural environment. During the past century the advancements of industrialized nations in it's path of destruction has only brought our own species closer to the edge of extinction. IN THE PAST 20 YEARS WE HAVE DESTROYED 1/3 OF OUR PLANET.
The more plant and animal life on this earth that becomes extinct, the closer we come. We have through greed, ignorance and neglect already lost countless species in one life time that took millions of years to evolve or that God himself created (whichever theory you happen to believe). The irreversible effects from the harm that has been done in the past is only now beginning to be realized by the scientific community and experienced by the general population.
It will require a lot more awareness and much stricter enforcement to halt this massive destruction that is now taking place.
Will we be next on the endangered species list within another century ?
With our air and water so filled with toxic chemicals that it now requires filtering, what about the animal and plant life that must struggle to survive.
"How much longer can they exist?"
When our world dies around us
are we not doomed also ?
