"Our data indicate that beyond global species extinctions Earth is experiencing a huge episode of population declines and extirpations, which will have negative cascading consequences on ecosystem functioning and services vital to sustaining civilization. We describe this as a ?biological annihilation? to highlight the current magnitude of Earth?s ongoing sixth major extinction event."

Wow! Biological Annihilation sounds awesome!! The fruits of human 'progress'. Is it really 'progress' if it destroys life on Earth?!
