    In 40 years the wild life on Earth has been halved because of…

    Habitat destruction: A bulldozer pushing down trees is the iconic image of habitat destruction. Other ways that people are directly destroying habitat, include filling in wetlands, dredging rivers, mowing fields, and cutting down trees.

    Habitat fragmentation: Much of the remaining terrestrial wildlife habitat in the U.S. has been cut up into fragments by roads and development. Aquatic species’ habitat has been fragmented by dams and water diversions. These fragments of habitat may not be large or connected enough to support species that need a large territory in which to find mates and food. The loss and fragmentation of habitat make it difficult for migratory species to find places to rest and feed along their migration routes.

    Habitat degradation: Pollution, invasive species and disruption of ecosystem processes (such as changing the intensity of fires in an ecosystem) are some of the ways habitats can become so degraded that they no longer support native wildlife.

    California has officially banned plastic bags because of this.

    Without most animals we would not be able to survive.

    Animals make up 69% of the Earth’s Population

    In my personal opinion I do not think there is a large chance for humans to reverse the loss of animals.

  11. There was a white house break in . Here are some facts

    1.- At about 7:19 p.m. on Sept. 19, according an officer who filed an affidavit in federal court, a man later identified as Omar Gonzalez was seen scaling the north fence of the White House. The officer who filed the court statement was among those who shouted at the man to stop. He did not — and ran across the lawn toward the White House.

    2.– At that point, Secret Service Director Julia Pierson confirmed in testimony on Tuesday, the intruder “knocked back” a Secret Service officer posted near the door. Pierson said Gonzalez and the same officer then crossed the East Entrance Hall together, made a left turn down another hall and “stepped momentarily into the East Room.”

    3.The blow-by-blow narrative of how a determined intruder was able to break through multiple rings of security and enter the White House on Sept. 19 is still coming to light.

    4.– “Moments later,” according to the court document, the intruder went through the north doors of the White House and entered the building. He entered through an unlocked door.

    5. According to the affidavit, after the intruder was apprehended, a Secret Service officer searched him and recovered a Spyderco VG-10 “black folding knife” from his pants pocket. The three-and-a-half-inch knife had a serrated blade.

    6.– As the suspect got deeper into the White House, sources said there was a struggle and a lot of “wrestling.” According to Pierson, another officer showed up and got Gonzalez on the ground, “on the carpet and handcuffed.” Gonzalez was apprehended in the hall, just outside the nearby Green Room. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman revealed Tuesday that, in the course of this breach, at least five rings of security were breached.

    7.But based on testimony, multiple interviews and court documents on what happened that day, the following is an account of what is known to date about that tense encounter which led to an alarming struggle inside the White House residence.

    8.- After he was caught, the suspect told a Secret Service agent he was concerned the “atmosphere was collapsing” and needed to inform the president “so that he could get the word out to the people,” according to the affidavit.

  12. The guy that climbed over the fence is so dumb. Why will you jump over a white house fence? . Luckily Obama went on a airplane with his 2 daughters and one of her friends.
    If not Obama would of been probally dead or hurt.But that guy is going to get a lot of time in jail because he was trespassing with a tough of a weapon and broke into a white house.But I thank GOD the president is okay and he is not hurt. They need to change security at the White House
