    "Humans have destroyed a tenth of Earth’s remaining wilderness in the last 25 years and there may be none left within a century if trends continue, according to an authoritative new study.
    The loss of the world’s last untouched refuges would not just be disastrous for endangered species but for climate change efforts, because some of the forests store enormous amounts of carbon."

    Only a tenth?? Unless they're including Antarctica, more like 20-30%.
