Earth will be a wasteland devoid of vegetation+animal life in the very near future.

Very sadly noted, I wonder just how much time earth as we now know it has left, or is it possible to reverse what has been done, or at least some of it. Maybe all those big companies who have made so much money from mother earth could re-invest it back into saving her. I know I am dreaming they don't care. Thanks Cal

What kind of action can we take? (And where are the big foundations when so many species are threatened?)

If this goes on the diversity of the planet will be changed irreversibly.

Perhaps one answer could be to work with the local folks and buy it up....not unlike the Rain Forest Trust. No question but that this is a global crisis and more and more people need to care a lot about it.
