Question asked by: Shelby

Asked on: 11 May 2008

Humans is one big threat and global warming is another. There is no way of saying which is greater.

Humans are a threat because of course if we cut down forests and so on to live on or sell wood then we reduce species, a huge number of which live in rainforests uniquely.

If temperatures rise then again lots of cold creatures will die out and those that do well in heat alone will thrive.

The biggest threat of all is something like a meteor hitting the earth, thus wiping us all out.
