BIODIVERSITY LOSS  (& The Future of Planet Earth)

PREAMBLE: Are we (humans) as a species progressively & statistically destroying our own home (The Planet Earth)??? … & starting with “lesser” species all life on it? … & as a result of this process endangering the very existence of absolutely everything (ALL races, religions, nationalities, loved ones & families & even our entire planet) … because of this massive vandalism of our own “inheritance” … & are we NOW inviting intervention because of our selfish, illogical & progressively self destructive actions from an intergalactic source???
