In Perspective, Planet: Loss of Billions of Birds in North America!

Asher Kelman

OPF Owner/Editor-in-Chief
What do we know about the rate of creation of new species. Do we just expect less of each major avian group with more resilient species filling changed ecological niches?

Could this be a positive trend in wiping out less competitive species?

Or are we actually on a path to a grim CO2 and methane bathed lifeless planet?

As I mentioned earlier that it is impossible to know what the bird population was in 1970. There are numerous remote places such as the Boreal forest where counting of birds was non existent.

We should stop the blame games and come forward together to save these bird species and overall humanity from global warming. The leaders should not play anymore, but take effective initiatives to reduce carbon emissions. The developed nations should take the lead here and of course others should follow them.

Maybe we should wait and see what happens during the next solar cycle. We wouldn’t want to jump to any rash conclusions based on ideology.

In the meantime we should hope nothing serious happens like some huge volcanic eruptions. Wouldn’t want some debris blocking the sun. We could all freeze to death.
