The world’s economies are encountering biophysical limits that are showing up in many ways, already disastrous for species such as the Pinta Island Tortoise, the Eastern Cougar, the Pyrenean Ibex, the Formosa Clouded Leopard, the Vietnamese Rhinoceros, the Christmas Island Pipistrelle, the Chinese Paddlefish, the Alaotra Grebe, the Long Jaw Tristamella, the Yangtze River Dolphin, the Black-Faced Honeycreeper, the Golden Toad, the Western Black Rhinoceros, the Heredia Robber Frog, all believed to have become extinct between 2000 and 2015. … The combination of climate change, habitat destruction and resulting loss of biodiversity is taking a toll that is too much to bear.
