Scientists predicted global environmental disaster


On Earth will lead rapid reduction of quantity of insects to irreversible consequences. In Australia scientists came to a conclusion that Earth is waited by environmental disaster. Phys.org reports about it. Experts analysed information from 70 databases around the world collected throughout a century. They found out that annually biomass of insects in the world decreases by 2.5 percent. Destruction of areas of their dwelling due to growth of the cities and agricultural grounds, use of pesticides and poisons is the main causes of death of insects. It brings that the number of 50% of all species of insects is quickly reduced, about a third will soon die out. Insects are a key link in a food chain and in pollination of plants. Decrease in their number will lead to catastrophic collapse of ecosystems. So in 30 years in Europe because of reduction of population of insects for 80% the quantity of birds decreased by 400 million individuals. It is possible to stop this process only as much as possible having refused use of insecticides and pesticides. The day before scientists predicted approach of large-scale chaos on Earth. Also it was reported that the forecast about growth of level of the ocean was lowered seven times. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
