While many of the "environmentalists" of the world run around crying about "global warming", the real environmental crises are being ignored.
The Living Planet Index, which was released on Friday, shows that earth has lost almost one third of all living species in the last 35 years.
Just think about that.
That is catastrophic.

The world's species are declining at a rate "unprecedented since the extinction of the dinosaurs", a census of the animal kingdom has revealed. The Living Planet Index out today shows the devastating impact of humanity as biodiversity has plummeted by almost a third in the 35 years to 2005.
The report, produced by WWF, the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) and the Global Footprint Network, says land species have declined by 25 per cent, marine life by 28 per cent, and freshwater species by 29 per cent.
Jonathan Loh, editor of the report, said that such a sharp fall was "completely unprecedented in terms of human history".

This brings to mind this verse out of the book of Revelation:
"The nations were angry; and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your saints and those who reverence your name, both small and great— and for destroying those who destroy the earth."
