I found this book well written, informative, heartrending, hopeful, gutsy, and compelling.

Given our perilous accelerating decimation [desecration if you will] of the environment and biodiversity we evolved with that sustains our being, and so many turning a blind eye to the hard science and obvious evidence, the author is offering up moral affirmation to try to penetrate the mindlessness. Kudos to the author.

Recommended reading.

Those who question whether this is important reading might ponder the thought: There have been five mass extinctions (a vast majority of species extinguished) in the history of earth, each caused by natural phenomena. After each one evolutionary development started over with what life was left. The last mass extinction some sixty-six million years ago ending the Cretaceous period set the stage for humans evolving. Currently, we are in the middle of what is shaping up to be a sixth mass extinction (extinction rates are thousands of times greater than natural), this time human caused, bringing the Cenozoic era to a close …

I live in a rural area, surrounded by nature. Our neighbors have cows, horses, goats, etc and the pastures host wild turkeys, deer, and all sorts of wildlife. Birds sing throughout the day and love a bountiful supply of sunflower seeds in the feeders. A few days ago three deer were only a few feet from my window. Sometimes I need to be reminded of how blessed I am to be able to live away from man's busy concrete jungle and in the serenity of the sounds of nature. Excellent writing and a fascinating read. Enjoy!!… (lisätietoja)
