    This is so depressing...I just heard a report from Europe that we are on a path to end of insects; within 100 years out insects will be extinct. No insects had a HUGE impact on our planet from pollinators to cleanup crew to food source. Number one reason is loss of habitat, number two is pesticides and three is climate change. What does that all mean, WE are the reason.

    This is why I try to do my small part -- and it is small -- by avoiding using toxic chemicals in my flower garden. I get to enjoy a diversity of small wildlife in my flowerbeds -- little frogs, lizards, birds, a little ribbon snake, numerous bumblebees, butterflies and others, because I try to keep it friendly to them. It means ridding the beds of thistles and other choking weeds by getting down and dirty and digging, digging, digging, or else spraying them with cider vinegar, which does help keep them down. I know they'll just return, as they have runner roots underground, but if I get them while they're small, it does discourage them, somewhat.

    What we don't realize is that nature maintains a delicate balance. When we disregard the laws of nature, we upset that balance, and that's what has our planet in so much trouble. Sometimes, wise intervention is needed, but we seem to have trouble differentiating between necessary intervention and harmful interference. We can be very poor managers -- stewards -- of our ecosystems. Too often, we micro-manage or don't manage properly. In most cases, leaving things alone and letting nature handle it -- in other words, doing nothing -- is the wisest course of action. We get our well-intentioned mitts on it, and we mess it up. Someone much wiser than we are designed our natural world, and we are sometimes so arrogant that we think we're smarter.

    As for the video, I had trouble hearing him -- the volume is entirely too low, and I have my speakers set at 100%. They won't go any louder. But I did catch enough to appreciate what he was saying.

    I absolutely agree with you. Very useful and correct thoughts.
