Scientists are warning of ‘ecological Armageddon’ after discovering the number of flying insects has fallen by three-quarters over the past 27 years.

Researchers in Germany have documented a steep decline at dozens of nature reserves.

Their findings have sparked fears the foodchain will collapse because insects are important pollinators and serve as meals for birds and other small creatures.

Apocalypse-Collapse-Burning

(Natural News) For years, I’ve warned that humanity is a suicide cult which has engineered its own destruction by relentlessly poisoning the natural world with chemical pesticides, heavy metals and GMOs. Now, the collapse of living systems across the planet is accelerating like never before, with ocean fisheries collapsing by the day, topsoil vanishing by the inch, and wildlife populations being decimated by the accelerating destruction of habitat.

Humanity, it seems, has broken the planet, and the mass die-offs are now impossible to ignore. Adding even more weight to the horrifying realization that humanity is committing mass ecological suicide, a new study published in the science journal PLoS One has documented a 75 percent decline in insect biomass over rural Germany in just the last 27 years.

The study, authored by Caspar A. Hallmann and others, is entitled, “More than 75 percent decline over 27 years in total flying insect biomass in protected areas.”

The food web is now collapsing… insects are just the beginning.

Even more worrisome, insects are the pollinators that keep 80% of wild plants alive by facilitating pollination.

Insect biomass “decimated” in mere decades… this won’t end well

A California woman thought she’d lost her dog forever when the pup bolted from her arms as she and her husband fled the California wildfires.

The family is now calling 9-year-old Izzy a “miracle dog” after she ran towards them when they returned the following day to check on the damage. Katherine Weaver was convinced that the Bernese Mountain Dog was killed when a wildfire began to engulf their Santa Rosa neighborhood. As the family fled, Izzy jumped from her arms at the last minute.
