Does David Suzuki have a list?

March 30, 2011

David Suzuki claims that “destroy species at the rate of 50,000 a year as if they are resources that we can exploit.”

 

Really?  50,000 every year?  That seems like a lot.  In fact, I can only find lists with at most a few per year (such as the one at The Sixth Extinction).

 

I’d have more respect for people if they would stop making up numbers.

    So we are so skilled we can take out 50,000 a year and we still have cockroaches, mosquitoes spiders and flies? I’ll pay someone to take them out.

    Excellent point.

    We can’t even manage to get rid of the species that we don’t want.
