Biodiversity – The Inverse Main Point

The blogosphere is full of much talk of environmental issues.

GW (or global warming) seems to take the cake for popularity. The fear factor and much media hype are partly responsible for the focus on GW even though one admits that the overall concern may be a very valid one.

But, for the biosphere, what are the real issues and environmental concerns?

If I had to pick the one greatest concern it would be the growth of
bioinversity / the loss of biodiversity.

I prefer the previous term as more descriptive of what is actually happening – species of all sorts are disappearing once and for all.
It is frightening. Bioinversity means that ecosystems will die, for
the interdependencies are huge.
We won’t notice the changes
overnight but our children,
and theirs in turn, will curse us as
the blindest of fools!
