Did anyone else see extinction? Is anyone else as scared as I am that weve lost 50% of insects!!!
A very interesting way of looking at it, I've never really thought about the whole matter being constant thing, but of course it's true. I suppose the matter gets locked into not very useful forms, which is why we don't see an increase in species as others die out. Perhaps in billions of years there would be a time period of great species birth if all the resources suddenly became viable again.I remember many years ago (back in the day I had a telly lol) seeing a program about matter and how it couldn't be destroyed. So I guess wildlife and nature doesn't really go anywhere. It just gets recycled / regenerated. You can't destroy matter it always goes on somewhere else. It was in conjunction with the great god debate. Neither concluded as I remember - I guess they can't because they don't know the answer! @newforest that made me waffle a bit your comment above about the world restarting. And things re growing.
I think the other thing that is amazing / interesting is that all the things that humans pollute with come from the earth in the first place. We aren't magicians and everything has to already be here. Unless there is life on Mars and it gets beamed down of course.........................
I’d like to think we’d die out before that happened, so the natural world could take back the planet somehow.Perhaps humans will be the eventual cause of loss of life on the entire planet. Wouldn't that be a legacy to leave
I do see what you are saying, nature finds a way but we are making that harder and harder. An argument against what you are saying is plastic. Nature can't find a way to use that. Instead it kills thousands of species.My knowledge of science. Trust me it's basic. The earth is made up of, what the earth is made up of, if it wasn't we would collapse in on ourselves.
So it's there.
We come along and discover it, remove it, realise if you mix it with something else it's got a purpose.
However what we make doesn't break down unlike the earth in a natural state. ( take a look at abandoned engineering) the ate hundreds of things we've made that are still there.
But, nature will use it. All the ships at the bottom of the ocean will be home to some life form.
There are unknown species out there.
Yes I said what we make doesn't break down. And that's the issue. The current one is disposable masks. Plastic is made from natural materials, but together those materials won't break down.I do see what you are saying, nature finds a way but we are making that harder and harder.
