Insects – The Sixth Great Extinction | Carte Blanche | M-Net

A review of scientific studies on the world’s insect populations has shown that more than 40% of insect species are declining and a third are endangered. This rate of extinction is eight times greater than that of mammals, birds and reptiles and it’s projected that without intervention, insects could vanish off the face of the earth within the next 100 years. The phenomenon threatens life as we know it on earth. Carte Blanche examines what consequences the collapse of nature’s ecosystems could spell for human civilization.
