"At the dawn of the 21st century, it is clear that changes of enormous ecological significance are occuring on our planet. The ozone layer is beginning to disintegrate. Since 1970 the world's forests have almost halved. A quarter of the world's fish have been depleted. We live in an age of ecocide. Seven out of ten biologists believe the world is now in the midst of the fastest mass extinction of species in the 4.5 billion-year history of the planet. Biodiversity loss is rated as a more serious environmental problem than the depletion of the ozone layer, global warming, or pollution. How have we come to be in this situation, and what can be done to conserve our environment for the future? Ecocide: A Short History of the Mass Extinction of Species examines the facts behind the figures to offer a disturbing account of the ecological impact that the human species has on the planet. Research specialist Franz Broswimmer shows how we are wilfully destroying our world. Highlighting important countermovements who are working for ecological democracy, this unique book is essential for anyone who cares about conserving our environment for the future."--Publisher's description.
