MASS EXTINCTION UNDERWAY

I want to call a web page to your attention. Here's a statement from it that is very, very disturbing:

Human beings are currently causing the greatest mass extinction of species since the extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. If present trends continue one half of all species of life on earth will be extinct in less than 100 years, as a result of habitat destruction, pollution, invasive species, and climate change.

You can find it right here.

There are hundreds of pertinent links on this page.

  1. I wouldn't worry too much about this. The way things are going it seems doubtful that we'll be here in 100 years anyway.
