Human activity, from overfishing to agriculture, is forcing a vast number of species to vanish from the wild. A staggering 41% of all amphibians on the planet now face extinction while 26% of mammal species and 13% of birds are similarly threatened.

If we don't stop fouling our nest, we will have no place to live.

Nature has a way of dealing with species that step way out of line. If She decides to get rid of us, we are all dead meat.

Humans' overbreeding is a key to all environment-related problem.
