Mass extinctions

Mass Extinctions and are We in One?

In THIS article the author reviews the five - or is it six - major mass extinctions. (The Cretaceous-Tertiary one seems to slip from the list - after being mentioned!) 

He then goes on to speculate as to whether we are in one now and comes to a "perhaps if we continue as we are" sort of conclusion. It is difficult to be predictive when one is an observational scientist.
