Climate: Rapid climate change, sea level change, ocean acidification, ocean anoxia, ozone destruction
Mass extinction aren’t just something of the past; it’s commonly accepted that we’re in one right now.
While the Anthropocene isn’t yet an official epoch, there is mounting evidence to suggest that human activity has caused such a perturbation to the system that there should be a departure from the Holocene.
It’s possible that up to 140,000 are going extinct each year, primarily as a result of human activities.
HERE’s a nice TIME article on this sixth mass extinction.

Min Jeong Seo - To live on
infusionsbags, roses, 2005
The stalks these flowers are already dried up but their blossoms are preserved and kept fresh by the medical infusin bags. The life-span of every living creature is limited.The infusion bags stand for the progress in medicine and the prolongation of human life.They somehow carry an ambivalent message as they refer to both death and life an the same time. Both states are immanent here. To preserve the beauty of the flowers artifically with the help of the infusion bags points out man’s inclination to repress the fact having to die and to postpone death
We just got in a selection of high quality, hand-crafted, agatized dinosaur bone jewelry. Both earrings and pendants. The last ones we got sold fast and we probably won’t get anymore from the artists for a while.
Agatized dinosaur bone is a unique and rare form of fossilized dinosaur bone that is only found within the Brushy Basin Member of the Morrison Formation, located on the Colorado Plateau. The latest dating of the Morrison Formation identifies it as approximately 146 to 156 million years old. This may have come from any of the dinosaurs found in the Morrison Formation including Allosaurus, Apatosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Camarasaurus, Diplodocus, Stegosaurus, and Torvosaurus.
