The loss of many different species, which is expected over the next decade, is only one outcome from the dangers which beset our planet. A major concern here is that we are in danger of losing the biodiversity which makes our planet so rich and beautiful in life. Not alone that, and more worrying for our nations across the globe, is that many of the disasters being suffered are affecting those less able to survive the consequences. Maybe this is one of the reasons for the cause which has brought people onto the streets, in the U.K. and in other countries - with the cry to governments to act urgently to reduce carbon emissions now, and not in 30 years' time. Science tells us it is possible to avert disaster - if we start now - and reform our planet into a place fit for all life to co-exist. Extinction is a strong word - and not used lightly. Our gallery below shows that more people are now determined to make the voice of the nation heard in the corridors of power:
