Worth mentioning that folk often assume climate change is the primary culprit of terrestrial extinction. While atmospheric warming is indeed a new stressor on the block, it is habitat loss & land change that is doing the most harm to the wild. And it so happens the primary driver of habitat loss is animal agriculture & its feedcrops (Living Planet Report, 2022).
In other words, the 6th Extinction event on our home planet cannot be averted wiithout changing what we eat, and how we produce it.
