Are we causing the 6th Mass Extinction Event?

I’ve been hiding under a rock writing papers for the past few months, but recently I did emerge to talk to the @Science_ish folks about life, extinction and how far should we intervene in the ebb and flow of other species?

…and of course, in the spirit of science communication, it’s all weaved into the context of the big scary new Jurassic World film.

Welcome to another off season tour episode of A STORM OF SPOILERS!

This week, Neil is back and all three hosts watched two delightfully silly dinosaur movies in the Jurassic Park/Jurrassic World series to discuss. After the usual Storm Chasing segment that brings up Cooking on High, Fortnite, and books, the gang delves into 1997’s The Lost World to prime ourselves for Jurassic sequel territory – the main course – Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. We’re playing it pretty fast and loose with spoilers in the second segment, so jump off at 39 MINUTES IN if you care about dino-spoiling.
