Earths sixth mass extinction has begun, study confirms

We are currently witnessing the start of a mass extinction event the likes of which have not been seen on Earth for at least 65 million years.
This is the alarming finding of a new study published in the journal Science Advances.

I’ve had a nagging feeling the last couple of years that something big was coming, something that couldn’t be avoided. Maybe this is what I, and
many others, have been sensing?

This latest research tells us what we already knew. Humans have in the space of a few centuries swung a wrecking ball through the Earth’s
biosphere. Liquidating biodiversity to produce products and services has an end point. Science is starting to sketch out what that end point could
look like but it cannot tell us why to stop before we reach it.

If this is true then we only have ourselves to blame. We are more focused on self-gain and profit than making life better for the generations that
come after us. Greed is the culprit, we are destroying Mother Earth in order to benefit ourselves in the short term. You can’t take money with you
when you die.
