A new study has revealed that we may be on the verge of an apocalyptic mass extinction event.
The research suggests that should we fail to reverse the damaging effects of human activity on the world's eco-systems then we may be heading towards an extinction event that could wipe out 75% of all life on the planet.
"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."
