AECB News : Human race just 0.01% of all life but has a disproportionate impact on life on Earth

New ground-breaking assessment published of all life on the planet

A new study ‘The biomass distribution on Earth’ reports that despite the human race being just 0.01% of all life on the planet it is utterly dominant in the grand scheme of Earth. According to the report, Humankind represents just 0.01% of all living things and yet since the dawn of civilisation, has caused the loss of 83% of all wild mammals and half of plants whilst livestock kept by humans is abundant.
