Species Extinction

I heard on NPR today about an issue with Monarch butterflies. They require Narrow Leaf Milkweed for habitat and food, at least in the Southwest. I hope we can plant some in our yard.

I recently heard someone mention the Delta Smelt that resides in the Sacramento Delta.

Both of these species and many other species require specific habitats.

As interrelated species are, the extinction of one species tends to have a cascade effect. There have been many species made extinct or are threatened by human destruction of their habitat.

Bees are presently endangered due to the use of certain insecticides used in agriculture.

If we don’t take care – as humans, many of our food sources including soybeans may become untenable. This would be bad, very bad. With a shortage of food, people may become endangered in some areas, perhaps by violence perpetrated by others seeking food.

I hope it doesn’t come to that.

God Bless America, please.
