HUMANS are just one of the millions of species on Earth, but we use up almost a quarter of the sun's energy captured by plants - the most of any species.
The human dominance of this natural resource is affecting other species, reducing the amount of energy available to them by almost 10 per cent, scientists report.
Researchers said the findings showed humans were using "a remarkable share" of the earth's plant productivity "to meet the needs and wants of one species".
I thought solar energy was supposed to be the savior of the planet and lead to an environmentally friendly energy source. No surprise that you cannot hide the anti-human agenda of the so-called environmental movement. The really stupid comment:
This showed humans used 24 per cent of the energy that was captured by plants. More than half of this was due to the harvesting of crops or other plants.
An agriculture professor at the University of Melbourne, Snow Barlow, said the paper showed humans were taking up too much of an important natural resource.
Let's see if we can understand this. Because we grow plants to support ourselves and then harvest them, we are infringing on the solar energy available to other species. And we should stop.
