Once again, the alarm is raised about the ORDER Testudines (i.e. Turtles, tortoises, and terrapins) hurtling toward EXTINCTION and the response is anemic and obligatory

It is now only a matter of time before the Earth experience it’s first extinction of an entire ORDER of species.  To help put that in context another order of species that you may be familiar with is Primates.  The Order of Primates includes man.  And now, unlike the occasional species, or sub-species here and there going extinct, entire ORDERS of species are falling into extinction.

 

There has been so many “Wake-Up Calls”, “Warnings”, “Red Flags”, “Alarm bells going off”, “Ominous Signs”, etc. regarding the collapse of our global environment with no proportionate response that we’d be duly advised to remember that Nature has NEVER “rewarded” ANY species that has showed disregard for its surroundings. 

 

And if you’re hoarding cash for when M.I.T.’s “before 2030” collapse of global commerce and attendant human population burn off, you should know, that a system of barter will come to reign.  Cash will be relatively worthless.
