Earth’s history has been marked by five great extinction events. With the current background extinction rate a 1000 times the normal, have humans brought about the 6th mass extinction? The changes our species has wrought upon Earth, its ecology & climate, has led geologists to compare us to a geological force akin to volcanoes, and terming this era the Anthropocene period (“Anthropo” meaning ‘human’).
