It’s no joke. The U.N. just released a report saying that, among other things, that more than a million species of plants and animals are facing imminent extinction.
This is something we need to act on, so to raise awareness, Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel got on it and went into the street (Hollywood Blvd.) to ask people if they were worried about one endangered species in particular – Homo Sapiens.
Homo Sapiens is latin for humans. According to Wikipedia, The binomial name Homo sapiens was coined by Linnaeus, 1758. The Latin noun homō means “human being”, while the participle sapiēns means “discerning, wise, sensible”.
So, they asked humans if they care about the extinction of humans and I’m not so sure how “discerning” or “wise” these homos are. But this is what they got.
