That is bad, and most people don't know just how bad that is.

Save the Spineless!!!

What is also sad is that the article felt the need to define vertebrates and invertebrates for its readership. How can we care about what we don't know, or care enough to know about basic biology.

Only ignorance of the decline in invertibrate biodiversity over the last thirty years could allow you to be complacent.
I don't think ignorance is any basis to build an opinion on.

Well, I would not particularly miss the "killer" bees that have decimated and displaced the European variety, nor the RIFA fire ant, emerald ash borer, Asian long-horned beetle  ... .

Sorry to pour water on it, but he never said that. Einstein was a physicist, not an entomologist so had no interest in the subject, and no records show he ever said it. However the sentiment certainly rings true, if too many of the 'workers' in the natural world become extinct, then the whole ecosystem becomes unsustainable in it's present form.

LOL


So is this part of the 6th extinction? Or has man dug himself a grave? I don't believe people are understanding how bad this is. I do hope people get a slap across the face before its too late.
