Yes, the earth is dying slowly, and this is due to some reasons. One major reason for the earth going into extinction is the change in climatic conditions, which is popularly referred to as global warming. This is occurring due to the fact that the sun seems to be having more effects on the earth and its contents as a result of the ozone layer losing its effectiveness. This layer is meant or has been protecting the earth from the ray of direct sunlight, but it seems the effectiveness is reducing daily.
What majorly causes this is the emission of carbon monoxide into the atmosphere as a result of domestic and industrial activities. This carbon substance dissolves the ozone layer gradually. The earth is really at risk of probably going into extinction anytime. Even the Antarctica continent that was known to be of intense lower temperature was recently discovered to be having a section of it being hot than usual.
