Earth may be on the brink of a sixth mass extinction on the scale of the apocalyptic event that wiped out the dinosaurs, a study claims.

The researchers say that unless action is taken now to reverse the harmful effects of human activity on eco-systems, a full-blown mass extinction could occur within a few centuries.

Recovery from such an event, which could eradicate more than three-quarters of all life on Earth, may then take millions of years.

Only five previous mass extinctions have occurred in the last 540million years.

This is more BS trying to make us think that Man is in control of this world when We are not. These lies come right from those Who want You to believe that a carbon tax is needed right now to stop Humans from using up the eco-systems-If Humans stops having Kids and stops using oil and stop taking in less air-then We save the world. So to save the world is to get rid of Humans. Then Why are We Here? This world was giving to Us by God not by People who think they are Gods that know the true scientific ways of Our world these want to be Gods did not make this this world , God did. So if Someone thinks they know more that God and are out to save Us and Our world from Humans and anyone who thinks He has this understanding I say to You that Human/s has to be insane.

Seems like we always lead ourselves into destruction. Honestly, we deserve it for thinking we can take full advantage of our earth and strip it of its resources and wildlife. We even have studies that warn us of what we are doing and we still can't change.

Quite simply, it is a dire catastrophe.  It has been for a long time, only much acknowledged recently.  A complete tragedy.

I watch the world around me die
I shed a tear inside, a grief sealed
There is no pain expressed; a cry
Only silent agony, a pain kept veiled

Nature crumbles, once Pure Might
All we know, torn, in ruins, sundered
And still, despite our vision, we say "It's still alright!"
With denial we turned our heads, few pondered

Our curse, bared, is our own obsession
Deep inside, far below, not always seen by our "knowing" eyes
A drive, a need, a burning fire
To expand, to grow, and always to dominate
If we do not change, our fate is sealed, Earth will tire
And no longer will we live with any sense of the paradise
This paradise tragically, avoidably, lost to oblivion

And still, we will not stop, we dive headfirst to our own demise; will we never stop to ruminate?

Censorship has always been used as a tool to subjugate minority ideas, regardless of validity.  Used to delegitimize certain points of view.  This kind of arbitary censorship will always be an injustice to humanity; it tries to brush ideas under the rug.  It forces the adoption of certain mainstream views, making it impossible to teach, learn, or speak about ideas that the censors disagree with.  This will always be unethical.

Fearmongering?  The term used to refer to those who worry and think about the potential realities that, by data, are approaching?

If we're going to name-call I'd say you were an ignorant denialist.  So, rather, what exactly are you attacking, idea-wise, specifically?  We could have a real discussion rather than merely insultingly labeling each other for our ideas.

I was asking why people need to worry so much about the world potentially ending. Do you really think it's healthy to dwell upon that when people have their own lives to worry about?
