Are We On the Brink of the Sixth Mass Extinction Here on Earth?

What would you say if we told you that the Earth is getting ready for its next major extinction; the sixth, to be exact?

In this video, a researcher at Stanford University explains his point of view on why the Earth may be entering its sixth major extinction.

There is evidence that there is an increasingly noticeable loss of life of various life forms in the wild. We depend on other life forms to exist here in Earth, as a part of the circle of life. As a result, when these animals disappear, it affects our way of life; not just humans, but other animals as well.

For example, what happens when a predator's main prey goes extinct? They either go extinct along with it, or they have to develop a new taste for something else.

Various species of mammals appear to be going extinct faster now than ever. It really opens our eyes to the changes our planet is going through and what might be in store for the future.
