Faces of Extinction: Permian Princess, 12″x12″
Earth has seen a few mass extinctions. The one at the end of the Permian Period (about 250 million years ago) was caused by global warming and was the most fatal. An 18-degree F rise in Earth’s temperature caused 90 percent of all species to die off. The average global temperature has increased by about 1.4 degrees F since 1880. Two-thirds of that warming has occurred since 1975. This art by Elizabeth G Fagan is based on the fossil skull of a reptile that lived in the Permian. Fagan found the battered fossil along Lake Michigan’s Left Coast.
