I had a quick read of an interview with the author, Elizabeth Kolbert. I need to get this book. Anyway, she talks abou 5 extinctions that have happened over the existence of life on earth and what caused them And then she mentions that the 6th is underway. And we are the cause. A little sentence "We are the asteroid now". Things like poaching and so forth are serious and nasty but humanity appears to be having a far more cataclysmic effect on earth life than that hey. And it cant be stopped I reckon.
