Ecological Deterioration

Revelation 8:6-12

"Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them... A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.... a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed... A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter... A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night."

The effects of the first four trumpets manifest concurrently and represent significant devastation of the earth's ecological environment: forests, oceans, rivers, atmosphere.
