Carl’s Climate Letter #695 has an interesting insight about the loss of insects around the world. Carl gives his analysis of the information and studies overviewed in an “Environment 360” article.
“Insects are vanishing at an astonishing rate. A global index of invertebrate abundance shows a population decline of 45% in the past four decades, mainly due to careless treatment of the environment by various human activities. Bees are just one example of something far more profound, and overall harm to ecosystems is at least a considerable counterbalance to the apparent benefits gained. Is this leading symptom of the sixth extinction going to keep right on declining? Where does it end?”
