FILM DESCRIPTION:  It’s a mystery on a global scale: five times in Earth’s past, life has been nearly extinguished, the vast majority of plants and animals annihilated in a geologic instant. What triggered these dramatic events? And what might they tell us about the fate of our world? Mass Extinction: Life at the Brink joins scientists around the globe in search of answers to two of the most dramatic extinctions: the “K/T Extinction,” which ended the age of dinosaurs, and “The Permian Extinction,” which wiped out nearly 90 percent of all Earth’s species 252 million years ago. These early mass extinctions could hold clues for what may be happening today – are we on the brink of a sixth?
