20% of the Worlds Animals Risk Extinction.

A new scientific report announced recently at a summit of world leaders that 1/5th of all the creatures on this planet risk being permanently gone forever. Here is the report.

My take on this is that Permaculture is becoming more important daily as a way to sustainably harvest food, medicine, textile materials, food and your own fuel! How many farms around Coos County could benefit from small slow changes here? Such as the milk farmers recapturing thier animals waste to turn into methane to run their own farm and sell back to the electric CO-OP as an example. Changes like this is what we need, not more pipelines and LNG plants that go boom.

Food for thought.
