Evaluating effects of globalization on biodiversity conservation

Globalization policies lead to a number of negative outcomes, including: 1) the accelerated invasion of the earth's remaining wilderness places, bringing a loss of biodiversity, depletion of natural resources and the breakdown of the planet's life support systems, as is already evident in ozone destruction, global warming, loss of species and habitat, depletion of forests and oceans, and the loss of the lands and rights of native peoples; and 2) the world-wide homogenization of diverse, local, and indigenous cultures, social and economic forms, as well as values and living patterns to reflect the efficiency needs of the new global monoculture; simultaneously, the homogenization of diverse landscapes, as they are transformed to suit the global market.
