Env News: primates, oysters, snow leapoards

We just keep knocking off the large mammals.

The world might see a mass extinction of primates if humans don’t act

Some 60 percent of species are in danger of becoming extinct, the researchers write, and a full 75 percent are in decline. If the effects of habitat loss, hunting and man-made climate change aren't mitigated, they say, our closest animal cousins will start to vanish in the next 25 to 50 years.

They are worried about the future of the snow leopard's habitat if common leopards begin to live at higher elevations in a warming climate.

The study, published Dec. 14 in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, is the first to document biological impacts of atmospheric rivers, which are predicted to increase in frequency and intensity under future climate change.

You like many will just continue to be desensitized to it as this type of news ever increases.

Trouble is, I don't get desensitized. It keeps hurting just as much, but the hope of relief has been extinguished. There was a moment when something could have been done... and it passed.
