Holocene Extinction

I didn’t understand that there is a global extinction event occurring when I was a child

Now I do

I also understand why many have stopped referring to it as the Holocene Extinction and instead use the term Anthropocene.

Because regardless of whatever other forces have contributed to this extinction event, our influence has become the driving and accelerating force.

And as I sit here today, thinking about mass extinction

I can’t help but think about the people I listened to the other day, eavesdropped

I listened to them complain about having to use paper straws

Invasive species

Paper straws
