Currently, approximately 80,000 acres of rainforest are destroyed every day. As a result, an estimated 135 insect, plant and animal species disappear from the planet daily. That equals 50,000 species per year as deforestation rages on. Pinning down exact numbers is nearly impossible, but most experts agree that we are losing upwards of 80,000 acres of tropical rainforest daily, and significantly degrading another 80,000 acres every day on top of that. Along with this loss and degradation, we are losing some 135 plant, animal and insect species every day—or some 50,000 species a year—as ...

"In 1999, the death of the last Golden Toad in Central America marked the first documented species extinction driven by climate change."

Nah i posted quotes and numbers. 3-8 per year compared to 50k per year is basically irrelevant. It would be like talking about air pollution, naming factories, cars as major contributors, but also listing smoke from campfires as a factor as well. Unless I misread or misinterpreted those numbers or quotes, which is possible, i've had a few glasses of wine.

I mean, I would simply imagine that deforestation is wiping out countless species of insects.....making a completely normal fluctuation in temperature pale in comparison. You do realize that recent warming isn't catastrophic or big right' Climate change is always making species extinct lol. Without our possible impact in the temperature change, many species would be going extinct due to climate change every year. CNN just always has a nice way of explaining impacts of climate change, and then saying, yeah, humans. If a species can't deal with the % of .5 degree of warming that we might be ...

haha because " human caused climate change" is identical to recent natural changes..its basically irrelevant in comparison to deforestation, pollution, and hunting when talking about species becoming extinct lol. . It shouldn't be in the article. Everyone agrees that humans have been a factor in temperature change of sooome degree.. I mean hell, to deny it would be to deny urban hot spots. No one agreees on the amount we have affected climate, and certainly not enough to determine if we have eliminated species because of the % that we are responsible for of the recent .5 degree of warming.

"The past five mass extinctions on Earth were caused by large-scale natural disasters like meteors or enormous chains of volcanic eruptions, wiping out between half and 96% of all living species. But the modern mass extinction isn't being caused by a freak act of nature, the researchers say. It's being caused by man-made changes to the environment including deforestation, poaching, overfishing and global-warming, and it's proving to be just as deadly." LOL @ MMGW being thrown in there.. The earth warmed much more naturally coming out of the little ice age, that must've killed off sooo ...

Looool. Good to know that you are completely irrelevant, just like me. You really need to realize that ALL of the glaciers have been retreating for a really long time. You also need to realize that we are still in an ice age that we have been warming out of for a long time.

It keeps the moisture from being taken off of the skin faster by wind and dry air.

Im actually going to have to agree with EyeKnows here.. And i'm only basing this off of watching every episode of survivorman about 3 times..but clothing will keep the wind from whisking away water/sweat, and keep it in. Hydration is the issue, clothing will keep you more hydrated.

Jorah was orginally spying on dany in season 1 for the small council, and was still until he stopped her from being poisoned, at which point she seemed to have gained his full loyalty. She found out about the spying in season 4, and told him to gtfo.
