The Great Dying, Pt. 1
Environmental scientists and engineers all describe the current era as planet Earth's sixth mass extinction. Its cause - humans. Approximately half of all now living plant and animal species in the world's densely biodiverse regions are risking extinction due to global warming and climate change. The rate the world's sea level is rising suggests that it may lead to a rapid change which would create momentous problems for citizens that live in coastal regions. This has led scientists to describe these days as the Anthropocene - the new geological era constructed by humans. The recent unparalleled temperatures in the Arctic as well as the data showing abnormal rises in upper atmospheric methane levels converge to give the impression that the near future of the entire human race is at stake.
