QUOTE: "The researchers found that about 1,234 species had been reported extinct since the publication of Carl Linnaeus’s compendium of plant species, Species Plantarum, in 1753. But more than half of those species were either rediscovered or reclassified as another living species, meaning 571 are still presumed extinct.(David's bold)

DAVID: Note the bolded paragraph. How do they really know what the extinction rate really is? We know 99% of all species are extinct as evolution progresses. Alarmism or possibly fake news

dhw: I don’t care about the accuracy of the statistics. The fact of the matter is that large numbers of species are going extinct, countless numbers of humans are dying or suffering because of pollution, human interference is causing many environmental catastrophes, and if the world’s politicians and industrialists don’t get their act together, the situation will simply get worse. I can only applaud all those young people who are demonstrating in the streets, demanding action.

I don't kn ow if politicians can get their acts. together.
