Actually, for those open-minded enough [read hollow-headed] to believe in macro-evolution, things like turtles dying off, species being eliminated, etc. should be joy and glad tidings. Since the core of EVERY version (and, oh yes there are many) of evolution is "survival of the fittest", the macro-evolutionists should be dancing a jig at every so-called 'loss'. One more step toward perfection of the planet. So, in the words of my great-aunt Ida, kwitcherbitchin!
And to sallmbag below regarding this being all the fault of the US, no one society is responsible for any of it. All societies make waste. Virtually all societies adjust the environment to accommodate themselves. But if you believe that the US is some 'special kind of evil' or whatever, and you live here, get out or die off. Be a positive change according to your own beliefs.
