No species can survive on this planet without respecting the three basic laws of ecology.
(1) The law of biodiversity—that the strength of an eco-system is dependent upon the diversity of species within it.
(2) The law of interdependence—that these species must be interdependent to support a strong eco-system and
(3) the law of finite resources—that there is a limit to growth. Growing human numbers utilized vast amounts of resources and steal carrying capacity from other species resulting in the collapse of diversity.
The greatest fear is not something in the future but something happening now. We are in the midst of a mass extinction event and thus in danger of radically altering the entire biosphere.
