Frog Extinctions Signal
Worst Of Horrors Ahead
By James Donahue
The disclosure by Science
Express this month that the world’s amphibian species are going extinct seems to have been written off by the media
as just another ho-hum and insignificant story. It failed to get much attention.
It should have made international
Since more than 500 scientists
from over 60 nations participated in the Global Amphibian Assessment that comprised the report, it is clear that the scientific
world is taking this matter seriously. And for good reason.
Amphibians are widely
regarded as “canaries in the coal mine” because their permeable skin is ultra-sensitive to changes in the environment.
“Amphibians are one of nature’s best indicators of overall environmental health,” explained Russell Mittermeier,
president of Conservation International.
Coal miners used canaries
in the mines as a way to escape death from noxious gasses. When the canaries were found dead in their cages, the miners knew
it was time to leave the mine.
The frogs are the same
kind of indicator species sharing our planet with us. If the toxic air and water is killing them today, the human race can
expect to meet the same fate. We are bigger creatures and not quite as sensitive as frogs so it will just take a little longer
before it hits us.
Simon Stuart, senior
director of the research project, warned: “Since most amphibians depend on freshwater and feel the effects of pollution
before many other forms of life, including humans, their rapid decline tells us that one of Earth’s most critical life
support systems is breaking down.”
During the three-year
study, scientists analyzed the status of all 5,743 known amphibian species. This included frogs, toads, salamanders and caecilians.
What they found is that
1,856 species, or 32 percent, are threatened with extinction, and at least 1,300 others are seriously threatened. At least
nine species have already gone extinct and another 113 could not be found and also may have gone extinct.
By comparison, the group
noted that 12 percent of bird species and 23 percent of all mammal species also are threatened.
That the amphibians are
dying should be taken as a serious warning that Aaron C. Donahue’s warning that the human race is rapidly heading for
extinction is correct.
Donahue, a powerful psychic
and advanced remote viewer, says the collapse of the Earth’s ecology is already irreversible but he says steps can be
taken to slow down the process if world leaders act immediately.
At best, Donahue says
he thinks humans may be able to last another 300 years on this planet. They will not be comfortable years, but he said it
is possible for us to hang around that long.
If we continue with business
as usual, the collapse will hit us like a runaway freight train with nobody at the throttle.
