Scientists talked about the sixth mass extinction on Earth that is happening before our eyes

Researchers are sounding the alarm: almost 500 thousand species of insects are threatened with extinction on the globe, which could be a real catastrophe for mankind. This can be found in the report “Warning to Humanity” on the website PHYS.ORG.
