Earth has lost four-fifths of fresh water and 70% of wildlife populations in 50 years
The 2022 Living Planet report is out and it does not bring good news. Since 1970, scientists find that the population of fresh water species has plunged by 83 percent, while the population of wildlife species has fallen 69 percent. There has been virtual extinction-level loss in Latin America, where the population abundance of wildlife species plummeted by 94 percent.

Asked if a Palestinian-Israeli who feels part of the Palestinian people can nevertheless be loyal to Israel, 63 percent of Palestinian-Israelis said ‘yes.’ Only 28 percent of Jewish Israelis agreed. If the solid majority in a society systematically views a minority as disloyal and doesn’t want them living in its neighbourhoods, that sounds an awful lot like apartheid.
