Earth Science

 Scientists are telling us that Human Civilization may be coming down – collapsing – because people are obliterating Earth’s environments and its natural resources.  Humans, even if they are lawyers or doctors, may know too little about Earth and this ignorance creates a problem.  Scientists are now informing the world about the sixth mass extinction, sea level rise, climate change, deforestation, coral reef bleaching, water and air pollution, acid rains, soil erosion, urban sprawling, ocean acidification, spreading fires, melting ice sheets, desertification, species extinction, toxification of soils, microplastics inside all human bodies, etc. etc. etc. (the list goes on and on).  As a species, are humans going down and will become extinct?  Are all of these studies and predictions true or are all of these just scientific exaggerations?  Do you think we humans are really going to collapse, or do you think humans will be just fine and will live happy forever?  Watch the video posted in our week 7 module (YouTube URL: ) and investigate about human collapse/extinction and write an essay about it.  The questions provided above are to motivate you to investigate about this topic; you do not need to answer them one by one. The essay must be at least three paragraphs long, and each paragraph must contain at least five sentences
