The global mass movement for environmental justice has not yet reached the critical mass needed to overthrow the destroyers of our world. We keep trying. I have listed a few significant links to learn more about what is going wrong and what we can do about it. Here are a few sources on environmental issues.
A few of the entries that follow give positive news or at least proactive measures we might take to avoid catastrophe. But most of them describe coming environmental catastrophe. Some are obvious signals such as falling mammal and bird populations. Others, less so, such as plummeting numbers of insects (which are eaten by mammals and birds).
Climate change due to human caused carbon dioxide pollution of the atmosphere is the driving force behind much of the disaster. Land and water use policies are also a part of the mix.
From time to time I have added a few interesting natural history notes.
The most recent entries into each category are towards the bottom of the list for each section.
