Facing the Mass Extinction!

This trailer explains the significant effects that we are having on our environment through our addition of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Throughout history, our Earth has experienced many mass extinctions. However, all of them have been a result of geologic and biologic forces -- never the result of something controllable, such as human activity. The Earth has never in its history been the way that it is today, and we are going to have to adapt to changes if we expect to be a species that survives a mass extinction.

    I’m keeping a record of this video- maybe I can use it in class next year. Nice find!
