Understanding the impact of human actions on the environment
There are three possibilities of the future according to humanity – One, we end up upsetting the natural balance of the earth and end up going extinct ourselves or two, we would escape this fate through innovation and technology. Here we can't imagine slowing down.
Yet it still remains up to us to imagine a third, where we actively work to protect other species and ensure life on earth remains in balance. Knowing the odds this third option is the most logically sound. But it remains to be seen what we will choose? Or will we continue to not decide and an option will be chosen for us by default.

Humans evolved and were able to drastically morph their environment and in effect the planet through various processes. The greatest of these processes being the burning of fossil fuels which has led to the increase in global temperature and the acidification of the ocean, among other things.
Coming to the modern day, it has been concluded that similar evidence is mounting on the extinction of a lots of species in the recent years. The time zone we are living is dubbed as Anthropocene (The age of man). And thus the sixth extinction is well underway.
Amphibian deaths of untold magnitude are occurring. This is alarming because the background extinction rate of amphibians is one species every thousand years that is one species usually goes extinct every thousand years, but it is thousands of species in a decade of late. This has been found due ...
Alien species have throughout the world caused havoc by killing local species. The reason being the alien species has no local predators to check its growth.
The advent of human transport networks has created a new Pangea (supercontinent) of sorts where all the land masses are connected by ...
The world was home to a group of mega fauna or big mammals like sabretooth tigers, etc. but they all went extinct. Many explanations have been put forward but the most probable is their killing off by human beings.
Similar to the mega fauna, human beings could be held responsible for the de...
But the mass level extinction was thrown open by the discovery of the asteroid impact crater at gola del bottaccione. A similar extinction even in terms of ammonites due to deoxidization of ocean was also discovered. The impact of these extinctions can be seen in the fossil and archaeological evi...
In the 18th century, Molars and tusks are found together but they didn’t work with their most current theory of existential belief. An elephant species mastodon with molars was initially thought of as two animals but eventually came to be accepted as coming from a single animal. Fossils started b...
Ocean acidification is taking place as a result of the large CO2 content in the atmosphere. Due to the absorption of CO2, the PH value of the oceans are changing. Organisms that can’t survive the PH value are dying out.
The organisms that make homes in shells are affected because the PH doesn’t allow for the formation of their shells.
The tropics are diversity rich which is attributed to the coral reefs interaction with marine animals. Corals have a symbiotic relationship where another organism that makes...
Migration can help species to survive the climatic shifts but not all species migrate, and their rates of migration vastly differ. An added problem is the formation of isolated forest pockets divided by human settlements which further hamper the migration of the mobile species, further ensuring t...

Deciding is too much effort so we’re likely to just stick with the default or safer option if it’s already been chosen for us.
When we get offered too many choices, the same thing happens—we shut down, unable to decide. Often, we end up simply choosing anything, just to get the proc...
Living creatures can be found of every aspects, types and species, it's our intellgence which allowed us to dominate our world. Even in human beings we are equally distributed and evolved everywhere, ranging from black to white, small foot to big foot.
