Another Road to Doomsday: Planetary Biocide
2021 State of the Planet
George Stone Ph.D.
Professor Emeritus of Natural Science, MATC
Dr. Stone's talk will have a "special emphasis on decreasing biodiversity and rising extinction rates, and on the increasing probabilities of pandemics."
"Each time a species goes extinct, the world around us unravels a bit. The consequences are profound, not just in those places and for those species but for all of us. These are tangible consequential losses, such as crop pollination and water purification, but also spiritual and cultural ones." - The Center for Biological Diversity ([link removed])

Opinion by Ilhan Omar and Tara Houska, CNN April 9, 2021
"By the Mississippi River headwaters -- the mighty river running through the center of our country and powering much of Minnesota ([link removed]) -- is a small, clear stream. Its bends hold marshy reeds surrounded by towering pines. It's one of the places where traffic noise is a rarity and the forest looms large. Lately, however, the sounds of heavy equipment ([link removed]) and excavators prepping the ground ([link removed]) to transport tar sands oil under the riverbed echo through the wetlands."
