Biodiversity Fact or Myth

Today North Pacific Research posted a new essay on Biodiversity on the archive page. Biodiversity is a main stay of the environmental movement and is the concept that supports the Endangered Species Act. This scientific essay looks at the history of biodiversity over the last 500 million years. Unfortunately, there is no supporting evidence for the commonly accepted opinion that biodiversity is vitally important to the ecosystem. Geologic history however does show evidence that is contrary to that belief. Whereas there is little doubt that the environment is important to life on this planet, stopping change may not be environmentally sound or humanly possible.

Change has been the norm for over 4 billion years on this planet. Repositioning the human race to survive the change may be the wisest thing to do. Changing the course of evolution requires science to know were evolution is going. Humans do not have the level of understanding. There is no indication that we will gain that insight in the foreseeable future. Maybe we should concentrate on the first law of evolution, survival of your own species until we get that knowledge. Overestimating your intelligence is generally a precursor to failure. There is little doubt that life and the environment will survive global warming and our flawed environmental policies, the question is will humans survive.
