#62 / Vermin

A recent New Yorker article called asteroids the "Vermin of the Sky." As reported in Post #61, they could make all life on earth extinct.

An article in the San Jose Mercury News, today, states that "life on Earth is hurtling toward extinction levels comparable with those after the dinosaur-deleting asteroid impact of 65 million years ago."

What is the cause of this non-hypothetical process of extinction? It is "propelled forward by human activities, according to scientists from UC Berkeley."

Will the real "vermin" please stand up?
