There have been two mass extinctions in earth history; the Permian, 230 million years ago, was the worst, even worse that the KT event that spelled the end of the dinosaurs. 70% of all species were lost. It was caused by natural global warming when volcanoes released greenhouse gases.
Today, we are re-experiencing the same global warming conditions that triggered the Permian extinction, only this time they are man made.
We are losing 4 species per hour, a rate on the same scale as the Permian extinction.
Man has no ability to live without the support of other species. We are committing suicide and killing the family of life on earth along with us.
