Our Planet's Fight for LifeBook - 2016
Refusing to accept the mass extinction of species as inevitability, one of the world's greatest naturalist proposes a plan to save Earth's imperiled biosphere. Edward O. Wilson demonstrates that we blindly ignore the histories of millions of other species, Wilson warns of a point of no return that is imminent. Angrily challenging the fashionable theories of Anthropocenes, who contend that humans can survive alone in an Edenic bubble engineered for their own survival, Wilson documents that the biosphere does not belong to us. Wilson has written "Half-Earth"as a cri de coeur, proposing that the only solution to our impending Sixth Extinction is to increase the area of natural reserves to half the surface of the earth. Suffused with a profound Darwinian understanding of our planet's fragility, this is a transformative work that reverberates with urgency like few other books.
