We have devastated their home, we have deprived them of their forests, meadows and flowers and replaced them with asphalt and concrete. We have sprayed them with everything we could find on the. We have sprayed the insects with as toxic substances that the birds became sick. We have sprayed them with the means which we claimed only affects the insects that eat up our crops.
We did all of this in a reasonable order – we did it to give ourselves food or to protect us against diseases such as malaria. And so we thought we'd enough that it would sort itself out.
clearly, if such a successful and widespread species that humans engage in to try to get rid of another species, so we are going to succeed.
