We've Entered the Age of Mass Extinction: Goodbye Fish and a Whole Lot More

By Scott Thill, AlterNet
Posted on August 8, 2011

Mass extinction is finally fighting its way back into the news cycle, thanks to recent scary reports on climate change from the International Programme on the State of the Ocean, the United Nations Environment Program and the July issue of Science. But University of Washington paleontologist Peter Ward has been there, done that, and he's still depressed as hell.

The above is the first paragraph of this must read article.

Thanks for posting this one, Badger.  Ward is always a great read and a straight-shooter.

Any chance of getting Ward to do a guest post on SkS?

I can email him if you like.  I don't know him, but that hasn't stopped my outreach efforts to date  :-)

Hopefully one of those extinct species will become that mutant strain called the Global Warming Denier.
