Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, suggest that a mass extinction of species could be underway, the sixth such known extinction in the Earth’s history.

In the past, mass extinctions have wiped out 75 percent of species. Humans are the trigger to loss of other species, yet seem confident they can avoid extinction themselves.

A sustainable lifestyle is crucial for survival of the planet and humans.
