"Humans Face Extinction if….." – Stanford University Study

Poral bearScientists at Stanford University are calling for an urgent response for species conservation and wildlife protection to avert dire consequences on human life and the planet.

A study conducted by the researchers showed that “without any significant doubt that we are now entering the sixth great mass extinction event,” a professor stated.

The study revealed that current extinction rates had reached astronomical levels; comparable to the one that saw dinosaurs wiped off the face of the earth over 60 million years ago.

Afrizap reports that a similar study concluded that species were disappearing nearly 100 times faster than the normal rate between mass extinctions.  If this is not stopped, it is possible that mankind would be destroyed and it would take millions of years for life on Earth to recover.

With an increase in population and the related land clearing for farming, logging and settlement, natural habitats are destroyed. This causes rising carbon emissions and ocean acidification.

What humans must do is to work to conserve endangered species and cut down on habitat loss. If this is not accomplished, man faces extinction as dinosaurs.
