WorldCitizen: Well, the first one at least is utter BS. Yellowstone erupts on average every 600,000 years or so. There was one in Indonesia about 74,000 years ago. We don't have mass extinctions every 600,000 years, and we didn't have one 74,000 years ago. That eruption in Siberia hundreds of millions of years ago was more than just a supervolcano. Sure, Yellowstone going off could wreck our civilization and kill tens of millions of people, especially in the US, but a mass extinction? No.

Is there really a reason to fight invasive species?If you've ever had a bedbug infestation, you'd already know the answer to this is "fark yes"Just because we cannot stop the natural spread of invasive species doesn't mean we shouldn't try and prevent actively spreading them.
