Study Says Earth’s Wilderness Will Be Gone By 2100

The Earth’s wilderness areas will be completely eliminated by the year 2100, according to a disturbing new study.

Despite the importance of wilderness ecosystems on biodiversity, climate, food, shelter, medicine and other vital ecological and evolutionary processes, they are being destroyed at a dangerously rapid rate.

It takes 1,000 years to repopulate a newly planted forest with tree species and it took earth one million years to create a rainforest.

Scientists say that by the end of this century all life on the planet will be at risk of extinction as all wilderness land will be occupied by humans and their corporations.

According to a report by Underground Reporter:

A wilderness twice the size of Alaska has been demolished by modern day practices in less than two decades. That’s 3.3 million kilometers, or a tenth of the world’s entire uncultivated land — simply gone.

A new study published in the journal Current Biology suggests that by the year 2100, all of our wilderness could be lost due to clear cutting, conventional agriculturemining, European colonizationlogging operationsanimal grazing, corporate polluting, and other dastardly deeds carried out by the unconscionably daft among us.

Rainforests are already rare. They only cover 7 percent of the planet to begin with, but more than HALF of the earth’s plants and animals are endemic to this type of wilderness. Many land-based mammals that are on the red list of endangered species also reside here. More than 50,000 species are being lost every year at the rate we are destroying our wilderness.
