    Extinction Event


    A bunch of German entomologists say the volume of insects they catch/observe has fallen by more than three quarters since the early 1980s. This is one of the biggest die-offs in the history of the Earth, and it's due to urbanization and intensive agriculture practices. They noted: "Unless we change our ways of producing food, insects as a whole will go down the path of extinction in a few decades." AFP

    Unsure whether humans or the asteroid impact that killed the dinosaurs is the worst in terms of number of dead species.
