Invasive Species, like the Asian citrus psyllid, are a huge contributor to extinctions. Fossil records show that the introduction of invasive species as a result of changing topography and land masses was making a significant contribution to the mass extinction of the dinosaurs right before the big whammy took ‘em all out anyway.

Sadly, though it isn’t mentioned in the article, the human response to the psyllid in Florida has been to spray with insecticides that are making a direct contribution to the extinction of the honey bee.

But now that the Federal Government is getting involved, I’m sure the situation will deteriorate into an absolute moneyed cluster fuck.
