Biodiversity is declining rapidly throughout the world. The challenges of conserving the world's species are perhaps even larger than mitigating the negative effects of global climate change. Dealing with the biodiversity crisis requires political will and needs to be based on a solid scientific knowledge if we are to ensure a safe future for the planet. This is the main conclusion from scientists from University of Copenhagen, after 100 researchers and policy experts from EU countries were gathered this week at the University of Copenhagen to discuss how to organise the future UN Intergovernmental Panel for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, IPBES -- an equivalent to the UN panel on climate change (IPCC).

so what’s the fix for this, “purifying” the gene pool?
And here I thought it was fish going batty from too much Co2.
"I saw the 'expert' caption under his name on TV."
“... Experts Say..”
Experts in drumming up crises to secure the easy life on the grant and taxpayer teat.
Don’t you realize that having only 3,229 species of roaches instead of 3,230 species will doom us?
This is not a “biodiversity crisis” this is evolution at work.
The Dinosaurs should be pissed that no government agency funded by taxpayers advocated for their biodiversity
Crisis in biodiversity? What crisis? Are some of the animals protesting? Oh, yes, I forgot about OWS. My bad.
Stupid, hallucinating self-interested bureaucracy is the world’s biggest threat.
The best way to address the larger part of this is to follow what my Dad taught me. Clean up after ourselves, whether we are individuals or corporations or governments. Then listen to hunters, fishermen and ranchers. Or we could put the EPA in charge and let the looneys rule us. One or the other.
PEOPLE are the best managers of habitat vitality because they induce prospective disturbance and manage predation at all levels of the biological pyramid. Excluding people in the name of "preserving nature" will necessarily lead to catastrophic system crashes and multiple extirpations, whether due to multi-predator systems or uninterrupted succession, guaranteed.
They’ve figured out we ain’t buying their “Climate Change” bs anymore so this is the next scam.
Obama administration to spend $5oo billion in attempts to save Sand oil cockroach.
There is no need to save or conserve species. Every species is constantly evolving and new ones will emerge as they are able to compete for resources
Really? When’s the last time you saw a new species of elephant emerge? Or cat? Or bear? Or buffalo? Or deer?
There’s no new species coming, bud.
What do you know about plants, or insects........ you forgot most of the worlds species
“Laying the groundwork for the crisis that will lead to global government after Human Caused Climate Change’s downfall.”
Bears repeating your comment, because that’s exactly what this is about.
