There have been five mass extinctions, in earth’s history. The last took place 66 million years ago, and ended the reign of dinosaurs. Studying these events, the bitter truth that comes out is the 6th mass extinction is on its way…! And only one species is responsible..!
Here in top 10 list, we will find out, top 10, worst ways we are igniting this mass extinction.

In the past, 300 million years the oceans have never been contaminated to this level & in faster rate, which is being done, today, even now…! One of the biggest threats to our oceans is man-made pollution. Discarded plastics and other residential waste, discharge from pesticides and industrial chemicals eventually find their way into the sea with devastating consequences for marine life and the habitats they depend on. Shipping accidents and oil spills add additional toxins to the mix.

The most toxic waste material dumped into the ocean includes dredged material, industrial waste, sewage sludge, and radioactive waste. Dredging contributes about 80% of all waste dumped into the ocean, adding up to several million tons of material dumped each year. Rivers, canals, and harbors are dredged to remove silt and sand build-up or to establish new waterways. About 20-22% of dredged material is dumped into the ocean. The remainder is dumped into other waters or landfills and some is used for development. About 10% of all dredged material is polluted with heavy metals such as cadmium, mercury, and chromium, hydrocarbons such as heavy oils, nutrients including phosphorous and nitrogen, and organochlorines from pesticides. Waterways and, therefore, silt and sand accumulate these toxins from land runoff, shipping practices, industrial and community waste, and other sources. When these materials find their way into the ocean, marine organisms suffer toxic effects and seafood is often contaminated.

We have discarded, our toxic wastes into the life support systems of thousands of species, which they call home.

We have been using plastic to suffocate them to extinction…!


Today, carbon dioxide is entering the atmosphere at rates greater than during the largest mass extinction in the history of planet. The atmosphere that protected us from harmful radiations from the sun, today its trapping heat and letting the planet heat up in unimaginable speeds.

We have emitted 1,540 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere

Exposure to air pollution is a leading cause of premature death worldwide. An increasing part of air pollution results from industrial activity and the production of energy. When unregulated, emissions of air pollutants constitute a market failure as polluters do not bear the costs imposed on society at large. My dissertation develops empirical methods to test the effectiveness and distributional effects of environmental policies designed to address this externality. To do so, I apply econometrics and data science techniques on large datasets from cutting-edge research in environmental science and engineering that I match with microeconomic data. The dissertation makes use of new datasets on air pollution derived from satellite imagery, as well as micro-level data on power plant operations and housing transactions across the United States.

Along with harming human health, air pollution can cause a variety of environmental effects:

Acid rain, Eutrophication, Haze, Effects on wildlife, Ozone depletion, Crop and forest damage, Global climate change etc.

1.2 billion people will suffer from extreme heat stress by the year 2100 


Compared to trees & other species, we human beings, only add up to  0.0001%  of life on earth. Yet we have cut down the total weight of plants by half. More than 50% of remaining half, has been converted into agricultural lands.

Deforestation has had serious environmental effects. While forests still make up 30 percent of the Earth, each year an estimated 18 million acres (or 7.3 million hectares) of forest are lost to Deforestation practices. This has caused land and soil damage while also displacing plants and animals that rely on the ecosystem created by forests. At the same time, the removal of trees means more greenhouse gasses being released into the atmosphere as trees play an important part in the Carbon Cycle as absorbers of carbon dioxide. The removal of trees can also impact livelihoods because people depend on forests for shelter, water, fuel, food security and jobs. Protecting our forests is extremely important in order to limit the impact of these effects and ensure a sustainable future.

Every year from 2011-2015 about 20 million hectares of forest was cut down. Then things started to speed up. Since 2016, an average of 28 million hectares have been cut down every year. That’s one football field of forest lost every single second around the clock. 


Today, humankind’s activities are altering the world’s climate. We are increasing the atmospheric concentration of energy-trapping gases, thereby amplifying the natural "greenhouse effect" that makes the Earth habitable. These greenhouse gases (GHGs) comprise, principally, carbon dioxide (mostly from fossil fuel combustion and forest burning), plus other heat-trapping gases such as methane (from irrigated agriculture, animal husbandry and oil extraction), nitrous oxide and various human-made halocarbons.
Replacing a forest with agricultural land & industries will generally increase the amount of sunlight reflected back into space
Earth’s temperature depends on the balance between energy entering and leaving the planet. When incoming energy from the sun is absorbed, Earth warms. When the sun’s energy is reflected back into space, Earth avoids warming. When energy is released from Earth into space, the planet cools. 

Over the past 50 years, solar energy reaching the earth has actually declined slightly, while temperatures have increased dramatically.


Now sip a glass of cool, clear water as you watch this, and you may think water pollution is a not a problem.Millions of people, die each year from preventable diseases, after drinking water from an unsanitary source. 80% of china’s water reservoirs are contaminated.And the rest of the world continues to over consume and contaminate its water supplies.
Water contamination is a common problem to all over the world. These may be geological or anthropogenic. Higher levels of contaminants in drinking water are seldom to cause acute health effects. Of course it depends on individual susceptibility and mode of contact with the body.
Microbial and organic contaminants cannot always be detected by human senses. You might go years before realizing a problem exists. Many folks never become suspicious until people in the community start to get sick. Water near agricultural areas may contain harmful organic material from pesticide or fertilizer application. Chemicals from pesticides and fertilizers in water may increase cancer risk and reproductive problems, and can impair eye, liver, kidney, and other body functions. Similar problems can result from exposure to water near industrial plants.


Our  planet’s, nearly 9 million species are, facing extinction.Plants and animals are dying off, at a rate that humans have accelerated, to be tens or hundreds of times faster than normal.
At the beginning of the 21st century humans slaughtered well over 100 billion animals for food every year, including a billion cattle, sheep and pigs and over 50 billion chickens. Globally, 99 % of all domesticates are commodities in animal agriculture, to be killed and transformed into food products. Global meat production is projected to more than double from 229 million tonnes in 1999/2001 to 460 million tonnes in 2050. Most of the increased demand for meat and milk will be in developing countries that are increasingly adopting a western diet characterized by a high consumption of animal proteins. 
We’re losing billions of bees each year, we rely on bees to pollinate everything, from almonds to strawberries to the alfalfa used to feed dairy cows. What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: no bees, no food.  
Over-fishing, cutting down, of forests all these, have led to devastating conditions, where thousands of species are, choked to death.


Climate change, is melting permafrost soils. That have been frozen for, thousands of years, and as the soils melt they are releasing, ancient viruses and bacteria that, having laid dormant. Are springing, back to life. Frozen permafrost soil is the perfect place for bacteria to remain alive, for very long periods of time, perhaps as long as a million years. That means melting ice could potentially open a pandora's box of diseases.
In the summer of 2016, a heatwave washed over Europe, thawing permafrost in the north. In the Arctic soil of Siberia, bacteria began stirring—anthrax, to be specific. The thawing, shifting ground exposed a reindeer carcass buried and frozen in 1941. The anthrax spores from the body found their way into the top layer of soil and the water nearby, before being picked up by thousands of migratory reindeer grazing in the area. Over two thousand reindeer soon contracted the deadly bacteria and passed it along to the nomadic Nenets peoples who travel alongside the reindeer and depend upon them for food. By the end of August, a 12-year-old boy had died, and at least 115 others had been hospitalized.
As the earth warms, more permafrost will melt & once they are revived, the viruses quickly become infectious.


As dramatic, as the effects of climate change, are expected to be on the natural world, the projected changes to human society may be even more devastating.
Agricultural systems will likely be dealt a crippling blow. Though growing seasons, in some areas will expand, the combined impacts of drought, severe weather, lack of accumulated snowmelt, greater number and diversity of pests, lower groundwater tables, will also accompany. 
This loss of food security may, in turn, create havoc in international food markets and could spark famines, food riots, political instability and civil unrest worldwide


The changes in climate, that create, warmer, drier conditions, increased drought, and a longer fire season are boosting these increases in wildfire, risk.  
Climate warming from increasing greenhouse gas emissions is forecast to dramatically increase the risk of very large, damaging wildfires over the next several decades, a new NOAA-funded study says. Here is an interesting piece of article that says that the risk of large U.S. wildfires is predicted by mid-century.
Wildfires take away homes, wildlife, as well as vegetation. All of the inhabitants of the wildlife environment now are found homeless. People often lose their houses as well if the fires are close enough to human housing. Vegetation is now obsolete if this area is near a farm or near the food of other inhabitants. Millions of dollars are spent repairing these damages and re-building homes and areas of vegetation.
More than 80 percent of wildfires are caused by people.
Warmer temperatures and drier conditions can help fires spread and make them harder to put out. 
This automatically, subtracts the time we have, to save this planet from no point of return.


Warmer average temperatures, will lead to hotter days and more frequent and longer heat waves.
These changes will lead to an increase in, heat-related deaths.
Exposure to extreme heat can lead to, heat stroke and dehydration, as well as cardiovascular, respiratory, and cerebrovascular diseases.
Heat waves are also often accompanied by, periods of stagnant air, leading to increases in air pollution and associated health effects.

The last mass extinction took place 66 million years ago, and ended most life species on earth.
Earth took 10 million years to recover from this devastation
We’re disrupting nature’s rhythms and killing our planet
We only have few years left to address catastrophic global warming or face a point of no return.
