Lee KumpLee Kump is a professor of geosciences at Pennsylvania State University and a fellow of the American Geophysical Union. His research interests include biogeochemical cycles, environmental biogeochemistry, and atmosphere/ocean evolution. With James Kasting, he is the co-author of the popular textbook ''The Earth System''.
Kump highlights the relationship between the climate crisis and mass extinction in Earth's history: “The rate at which we’re injecting CO2 into the atmosphere today, according to our best estimates, is 10 times faster than it was during the End-Permian [...] And rates matter. So today we’re creating a very difficult environment for life to adapt, and we’re imposing that change maybe 10 times faster than the worst events in earth’s history.” Provided by Wikipedia
