No Ark this time!


After No Ark this time!the five mammoth extinctions in the earth’s history, the Ordovician Extinction (440 million years ago), the Devonian Extinction (about 375 million years ago), the Permian-Triassic Extinction or the Great Dying (250 million years ago), the fourth mass extinction (205 million years ago) and the fifth mass extinction (65 million years ago) we perhaps are now parking ourselves at the edge of another mass extinction… all thanks to global warming! Almost 30% of all species of plants and animals would be extinct by 2050 as the repercussions are being estimated! A living breathing example of climate change related extinctions is taking place in the Costa Rican jungles where as many as seventeen species of amphibians have disappeared, even as the numbers of monkeys and certain reptile species is on a downward slide. Climate change, it is being believed has led these creatures to fall prey to a kind of fungus of the skin that has wiped out the exquisite Golden Toad and at least two varieties of Harlequin Frog, amongst others only found in Costa Rica, almost confirming their extinction. This phenomenon of mass extinctions also threatens species in West Asia and other vulnerable corners of the globe.
