A Threat To Our Planet


A new landmark report from the United Nations paints a bleak picture of the planet. It warns 1 million of the planet's 8 million species face the threat of extinction. Humanity's ever-growing population and seemingly insatiable consumption are destroying the natural world, the report says. The global rate of species extinction is listed as "tens to hundreds of times higher" than it's been over the last 10 million years. Shrinking habitat, exploitation of natural resources, climate change and pollution are the main drivers of species loss. And that's not the only recent bad news to come out. Another study says permafrost is melting so fast

in the Arctic that it's damaging the equipment scientists use to measure it.
