The saying used to be, "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea," now it would appear to be "Between the Mercury and Greed."

These species will go extinct. There is an exceptionally high probability that ALL of the animals on the Endangered Species List will go extinct. Also, both alpine and polar species will go extinct. The crisis is here. It is ongoing. It will get much worse. Conditions are deteriorating much faster than the ability of governments or of individuals to respond. We will know horrors within our lifetimes. This is unavoidable now. However, if anything of our civilization and anyone of our species is to survive, then we must demand dramatic action now. And we must radically change our own way of life. There is no longer a choice...unless sticking one's head in the sand and committing suicide by consumerism seems preferable.
