Prevent the Earth’s Sixth Mass Extinction

Target: Gina McCarthy, head of the Environmental Protection Agency

Goal: Prevent further environmental damage that is contributing to Earth’s impending sixth mass extinction.

The earth is on the brink of the sixth mass extinction of its time, largely thanks to the environmental damage caused by humans. Climate change and massive damage to Earth’s animals and ecosystems have been a large debate lately, but the reports of this mass extinction truly demonstrate the gravity of the situation at hand.

A recent study that predicted the mass extinction blamed deforestation, poaching, overfishing and global warming for the unnatural turn of earthly events.

“We have the potential for making massive change… and the bottom line is that we can’t be the generation responsible for wiping out three-fourths of life forms on the Earth,” Anthony Barnosky, a professor of biology at Berkeley, said.

Scientists allege that we as humans must make major changes and quickly or we may cause irreversible damage to the planet we call home. Now more than ever, urge officials to enact a dramatic reform towards preventing further environmental damage that is contributing to Earth’s impending sixth mass extinction.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Gina McCarthy,

Recently scientists announced that the earth is on the brink of the sixth mass extinction of its time, largely thanks to the environmental damage caused by humans like deforestation, poaching, overfishing and global-warming.

Scientists allege that we as humans must make major changes and quickly or we may cause irreversible damage to the planet we call home, so I strongly urge you to enact a dramatic reform plan towards preventing further environmental damage that is contributing to Earth’s impending sixth mass extinction.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    World leaders need to work together, to address over-population (un-sustainable), over reliance on animals for food (un-sustainable), and over-production of non-recylable consumables (un-sustainable). This needs to start soon (ie now) if we have any hope of saving the beautiful planet we have. I hope they are brave enough.

  2. STOP GAS FRACKING. ELIMINATE SALE OF PESTICIDES.

  3. “The human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future – deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities and the spread of disease.” — The World Watch Institute

  4. STOP breeding humanbabies, castrate and sterilize more humans, especially rapists. There are 3 billion people too much on earth, so also too much pollution, overfishing, too much factories and greenhousegas. But maybe the Earth may strike back once, look at ebola, earthquakes and vulcaneruptions.

    The Dinosaurs couldn’t stop their mass extinction, but we can. If humans are the smartest of all animal life, why are not stopping this from happening.

    Stop removing resources from the planet, reduce green house gases, after all if you push the earth too far, the planet will unless hell on the surface and the lives on it.

  6. CATS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MASS EXTINCTIONS, HUMANS ARE AND ASIANS ARE THE ONES THAT ARE MOST RESPONSIBLE, THEY KILL AND EAT EVERYTHING, TIGERS, RHINO HORNS, ELEPHANTS FOR THEIR IVORY AND EVERYTHING BIG AND SMALL, IT IS THE ASIANS THAT HAVE TO BE STOPPED, THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE.

  7. Patricia Poole says:

    There are soo many things that are contributing to the killing of our beautiful Mother Earth. We actually would have no hunger in any country if people were in tuned with the rhythm of the earth.

  8. Catherine Alquier says:

    I think overpopulation is the major cause of destroying natural habitat, more we are, more we cut the forests, do pollution and killed animals to eat them.
    If everyone as an only child, it will automatiquelly diminush the problems.
    Less pollution, less cars, less garbage, less cut of the trees….
