Population and Climate Change destroys Biodiversity

As the world population increases, so does the need for living space. This includes increasing present urban areas, creating new urban areas, or both. Furthermore, this means that greater amounts of agricultural land must be created from virgin forests and other wilderness areas, which are usually wildlife sanctuaries. So our biodiversity is being driven to the edge - and sometimes destroyed completely. This process will continue, and may even be intensified if environmental refugees have to…See More

Murderous Killers

Chytridiomycosis fungus is killing many amphibians. One theory of its growth is due to an increase in air temperature caused by global warming or climate change. There may well be other murderous fungi, bacteria, diseases or parasites waiting to become ubiquitous. The problem is that however well meaning some conservationists are, in reality- we must wait until the lethal plague appears, before we can destroy or control it. Unless of course, we tackle be probable causes of climate change...

Wildlife and Eco-systems

Some 'carbon sink' and other reforestation projects aim at planting huge numbers of trees, and the Foundation for Endangered Species supports all of these well meaning projects. However, not all of these potential projects continue the conservationist line as thoroughly as they ought: this is because some of these potential projects do not have an agenda for wildlife. Animals simply do not feature in some of their thinking or plans. Perhaps it is because of funding, other difficulties or a lack…See More

"You are right, people, polar bears, pikas, penguins will and are suffering. Check out the Center for Biological Diversity's "350 Reasons we need to get to 350ppm: 350 Species Threatened by Global Warming"…"

Climate Change and its Effect on Wildlife

The effects of Climate Change will probably be disasterous for millions, and most of us in the CCMP know that. Moreover, many species of animal do not have the ability to speak up for themselves on this or any of the inter related issues. Certain interested journalists must do it for them.With the burgeoning human population, and its need to push back the barriers of wilderness areas that are many animals habitat and refuge, humans are taking up every possible space to housing, manufacture,…See More

Andy Mydellton commented on Jane Whitham's blog post Carbon Army
"Great stuff! Whilst meetings and conferances are importatnt - and they are - conservation fieldwork and 'hands-on' work must follow, otherwise it all ends up being guff. Let us all support BTCV, the National Trust and other practical…"

Andy Mydellton commented on Mike Shanahan's blog post COP15 for journalists: a guide to the UN climate change summit
"All associated issues listed above must surely be high on the Copenhagen agenda. Even so, if there is a sniff of success Barack Obama will be there; if so, then other world leaders are likely to go and raise the stakes further. (Sadly I may not be…"
