The Earth has entered its sixth mass extinction phase, a new study warns, and the time we have to avoid dramatic consequences is rapidly running out. Vertebrates (which include mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish) are disappearing at a rate 114 times faster than normal.


If we keep heading in the wrong direction - which we are - you might as well bend over and kiss our asses goodbye. We’re headed for the same fate as the dinosaurs. I don’t know how long it’ll take and I’m not sure how we’re going to stop it.

I’ll be turning 63 next month. I’ll be long gone before it gets to that point so I don’t have to worry. 

Although, I feel bad for those that will still be around and have to deal with the mess we’ve created.
