We don’t need rowdy Extinction Hellions on our streets – we need Education on Extinctions in our science academies, classrooms and media.
Extinctions are natural events that close every chapter of Earth’s history – they remove species that can’t cope with competition or change. Better adapted species take their place.
The rocks are Earth’s archives, recording past climates, extinctions, ice ages, droughts, planetary impacts and volcanic activities. There is NOTHING unusual about current conditions or trends except for today’s huge human population. (Dinosaurs also were very numerous and successful, but only remnants of their line remain today.)
