Favorite Book - Richard Leakeys " The Sixth Extinction " . There have been five mass extinction in earths history . As much as 95% of the life wiped out. But these were life shaping events not "Totally F@"#ed" events. Our current biosphere and fauna /flora are the evolved survivors of these events. Mankind is creating the Sixth extinction at this point. I don't believe the earth is screwed , maybe us. I grieves me to know we may see gorillas and elephants go extinct in our lifetimes. We may prove ourselves an evolutionary deadend - and take some other beings with us . But we will not destroy the planet. We will prove that big brains are not so great an idea after all. Unless we become good stewards like Lawton and Fukuoka.
 
Evil is afoot. But this tiny ad is just an ad:
