“OUR SUCCESS IN TRANSFORMING THE COMMODITY MARKETS WILL DETERMINE NATURE’S (AND OUR) FATEMongaBay  http://ow.ly/a8DiF

According to a report by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the deforestation that has already taken place in Indonesia for palm oil, and the illegal logging that is still occurring there now, indicate that most of the country’s rainforest will have been destroyed entirely by the year 2022.

An ECOCIDE of Mammoth Proportions

VIA: Biodiversity IS Life: Environment, Ecosystems 

Just 300-500 companies worldwide control 70 percent of the trade of each of the 15 key commodities linked to habitat destruction and degradation. And less than 100 corporations impact half of global production.”

This is an issue that must be addressed and addressed head on NOW.  Planet Earth survives because of a healthy biodiversity where all species in the web of life are symbiotic, interdependent and which we humans depend upon for our very survival.  As top of the food chain, we humans have both a moral and ethical responsibility to ensure this balance is maintained, not just for our own survival sake, but for all life that we depend upon in all ecosystems.   We are destroying Nature at an alarming pace; emptying our oceans, destroying our soils and waterways, poisoning our food and wildlife with lashing of pesticides and chemicals with no idea what the final outcome of this destruction will be.  Extinction is forever and the inbuilt intelligence of ecosystems is beyond our scientific minds due to its intricacies and self-regulating integrity.  And if take an icon such as the Orangutan (one of our distant cousins) to wake us up, so be it.  For we must WAKE UP, get out of our heads, put aside our linear statistical thinking and reconnect with the circular organic process of life that we are part of and depend on for our health & well being.
