Harkins S (2019) Why is climate change still not top of the news agenda?. The Conversation. 19.09.2019.

Records indicate that population decay and the rapid extinction of a large number of vertebrates in recent years amount to “a massive anthropogenic erosion of biodiversity and of the ecosystem services essential to civilisation”.
