Just where are all the governments in the world? Their focus should be on cleaning up our earth for future generations and not war. Global warming is our biggest threat. Why can they not see this?

Just ask the climate deniers. This is not a signal that Catastrophic Global Climate Destruction is real. (The worst mistake made was calling it Global Warming.)

Regardless of whether some people "believe in" man made climate change, we should all be VERY worried about loss of biodiversity. The more species that are lost as a result of climate change, the closer humans become to being NEXT!

This could lead to a change in the Japanese diet Instead of hunting whales and dolphins they can switch to giant crabs. This could make the work of Greenpeace much easier.Instead of whale and dolphin steaks the Japs can have crabmeat steaks. How about crab sushi or deep fried crab with black bean sauce.or crabwith tofu and sweet and sour sauce,the list could be endless. This could stop excess breeding of the crabs,and instead of being critical of the Japanese we can laud them for a change.

Human actions have stuffed up Planet Earth good and proper - hope future actions will all be towards sustainability and correcting the imbalances created in the past, it's the only way to go - leaving the earth in a better state than what you found it in, for the benefit of future generations of all (not only humans!)
