The world’s insects are hurtling down the path to extinction, threatening a “catastrophic collapse of nature’s ecosystems”, according to the first global scientific review.

More than 40% of insect species are declining and a third are endangered, the analysis found. The rate of extinction is eight times faster than that of mammals, birds and reptiles. The total mass of insects is falling by a precipitous 2.5% a year, according to the best data available, suggesting they could vanish within a century.


More at the link. Due to pesticide use and climate change. At this rate, all insects will be extinct in 100 years. Meanwhile, Trump thinks it’s all a hoax.

I doubt all insects will go extinct. More like most but that is enough to destroy our current society.

Part of me understands how bad this is and how catastrophic it will be

The other part of me is too busy saying "good, f*** bugs"

This is a minor problem, once the insects die off we will just make genetically modified pleasing insects we prefer to replace them. Insects that can tolerate pesticides and need less food.

Let them die off.

The day I saw a silverfish twice the size of my god damned hand walking up my wall is the day I declared war on all bugs.

Are pesticides and agriculture in general not the leading cause?

Also, I hope I'm alive to see the day mosquitoes and flies go extinct.

The thing is most pest aren't likely to go extinct, this mass extinction will approach zero and never actually get there.

Then we'd better get started now. Genetic engineering isn't something we can leave until the last minute.
