7. Over the same period, wild animal biomass has gone down by 95%

Since 10,000 BCE the world's wild animal biomass has decreased from about 300 million tonnes to under 20 million tonnes, while the biomass of domesticated animals has increased from 0 to 1400 million tonnes. And the biomass of human beings has gone from about 200,000 tonnes to 400 million tonnes.

Our numbers and our needs have destroyed the planet. There is no going back.
