Sucks. Looks like we're living through a mass-extinction, folks.

If CO2 levels double, and temps increase as expected, 25 percent of the world's plant and vertebrate animal species could be extinct by 2050 according to a University of Toronto study. (National Geographic) Sorry, this study isn't unprecedented. In 2004, a University of Leeds (UK) study projected global warming would wipe out a million species by 2050. (also National Geographic) And more recently, a World Wild Life Fund report determined man was responsible for a 35 percent crash in biodiversity, the "biggest mass extinction since dinosaurs."

Pretty lame.

To the global warming skeptics -- those who think it's a hoax or that man has nothing to do with this -- do you really think it's a mere coincidence that we happen to be living in the midst of a mass extinction? These are pretty rare.
There have been six mass extinctions over the past 488 million years. So there's a one-in-eighty-million chance that we just happen to be living through one. The last one, that wiped out the dinosaurs, was 65 million years ago.

According to a 1998 survey by the American Museum of Natural History, "nearly 70 percent of biologist view the present era as part of a mass extinction event, possibly the fastest ever." (

Pound360 Archive

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
