"Our planet is now in the midst of its sixth mass extinction of plants and animals — the sixth wave of extinctions in the past half-billion years," the Center for Biological Diversity stated. "We're currently experiencing the worst spate of species die-offs since the loss of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago."
Whenever we think about Extinction, we think of all the rare and exotic plants and animals. But in reality, we are equally part of this Extinction. When we have droughts, floods and heat wave killing humans and animals alike, it is wrong to think that humans are somehow separate or immune of the consequences of environmental degradation. The only saving grace (or not) is the number of humans makes it difficult for human species being wiped out. But it looks like, we are going to wait for it or rather race towards that eventuality.
