Would you consider the loss of biodiversity that is going on at the present time a mass extinction event?

    Science would not because it requires a devastating event. The meteor that killed the dinosaurs would be considered a mass extinction. However, in the future, scientists may look back and consider now a period of mass extinction because of the Earth’s change in climate. If it can be proven that climate change and global warming are or will be directly responsible for the extinction of a great amount of species, then it could be considered a mass extinction event.
