Re: The "We're all going to die" hand-waving aside
Ah, the voice of sense.
"*FWIW, I take unreasonable exception to the phrase 'go extinct', it just doesn't sound right to me, possibly because the verb 'go' implies motion. I far prefer 'become extinct' or in the case of anthropogenic extinctions, 'be made extinct'."
I agree wholeheartedly. "Go extinct" is a really ugly phrase. I'm pleased I'm not alone.
