Are you looking forward to your new wildlife-free future on this planet? Not a single bird to be seen in the sky, not a single fish to be found in the rivers or oceans, not a single wild animal left on the land. There will probably be plenty of insects of course, but maybe not bees, and of course without bees we can say goodbye to a lot of vegetables that we consume. We are not too far off this bleak scenario, and while we go about our daily routine without any concern whatsoever for the wildlife on this planet, we rapidly approach midnight. I make it about two minutes to midnight and counting right now. Pleased to say I’m unlikely to be around to witness this most pathetic state of affairs when the clock strikes 12.
