    How is the Sixth Extinction different from previous events? The current mass extinction is caused by humans.At first glance, the physically caused extinction events of the past might seem to have little or nothing to tell us about the current Sixth Extinction, which is a patently human-caused event. For there is little doubt that humans are the direct cause of ecosystem stress and species destruction in the modern world through such activities as:

    •transformation of the landscape •overexploitation of species •pollution •the introduction of alien species And because Homo sapiens is clearly a species of animal (however behaviorally and ecologically peculiar an animal), the Sixth Extinction would seem to be the first recorded global extinction event that has a biotic, rather than a physical, cause.

    ^ you human just can not stand the Humans that live there can you? Man Bad is all I every here from you.

    “Some of the End Timers seem to think that the sooner we destroy the planet the sooner Jesus will return”

    I think you have them confused with Muslims. They are the ones actively seeking an end game. I know of no “Christian government” looking for such a solution. On the other hand I could name 3 Muslim Nation of the top of my hand that believe in total destitution of their neighbor and even losing over half of theirs will bring about a new world for Allah.

    “The AGW (anthropogenic global warming) deniers” i thought it was cooling, or was it warming? Now it is just Man AGW bad? What happened to just plain Change? I thought Obama was going to keep the Ocean from rising? Or was it Owl Gory was going to keep us safe from the Demon CO2 by trading it around the globe and making it into a billion $ money making scheme.

    There was an interesting show on History Channel International a few days ago about different ways life on Earth could come to an end.

    Black holes, supervolcanoes, asteroids, etc.

    The number one danger the show came up with is GLOBAL WARMING.

    More deadly than nuclear war or pandemics.

    harley, George W. Bush’s staff were looking for the End Times; note that the co-author (and believer) of the Left Behind series, Tim LaHaye, played a part. Our previous foreign policy was aligned with evangelical beliefs that Armageddon would begin with a war in the Middle East, but Israel had to be protected both (1) to enable it to happen, and (2) because Jews would convert en masse to Christianity. This explained The Bush Administration’s somewhat contradictory policy of engaging with the Arabs but being hard-line protectors of Israel without trying to get peace. They needed to protect Israel but make the final war possible. And I’m getting tired of your lame, ignorant, and aggressively ill-informed “opinions” on AGW, harley. You don’t make any sense, you don’t have anything to contribute, and you’ve rejected every attempt to educate you. The evidence KEEPS MOUNTING, but if anything you are getting even more aggressively ignorant.

    Whatever the cause of previous mass extinctions and whatever the cause of this one, it’s true that it’s been shown to be remarkably difficult to kill ALL life on Earth. Some life will survive after virtually any imaginable cataclysm, and in whatever environment remains there will again be a gradual rebuilding to diversity.

    However, what assurance do we have that HUMANS will be represented among the surviving species? We’ve only been here for the blink of an eye on the geologic scale, and if we disappear the planet will hardly notice we’ve gone. But frankly I find homo sapiens to be an endlessly fascinating species, and I’d like to see them stick around…

    How is that for my contribution?

    Yes I am a heretic in the church of Gorbull Warming. I do not fear the demon CO2! I do believe that the Tax Cap and Trade the Plunder will not save us! I believe it is the worst thing we can do to try to “save the planet” And that it is nothing but a shake down by those who have nothing to do with helping but just want to line their pockets

    Motive tries and fails “George W. Bush’s staff were looking for the End Times” Really? You really believe that? You really believe hat the former head of the USA was looking for a end time? He was doing anything he could to bring the world into a downward spiral so that God Jesus Mohammad or who ever can come back? wow and you call me names. I can not call you anything. You do such a good job of showing who you are there is nothing more to say.

    Carl Sagan used to warn against having a nuclear war because the dust kicked up by the bombs (aside from being radioactive) would obscure the sun and cause a “nuclear winter.”

    You can see, on a small scale, how dust from Mt. Pinatubo in the Phillipines caused a little cooling in the early ’90s.

    The current state of affairs is different, it is greenhouse gases that are causing heat to be trapped, warming the planet. Carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone are the main culprits.
