Only Humans Can Halt the Worst Wave of Extinction Since the Dinosaurs Died

by E.O. Wilson



With the world population at 5.7 billion and sure to keep on growing rapidly until well into the next century, humanity has entered a dangerous environmental bottleneck. We hope--surely we must believe--that our species will come out the other side in better condition than when we entered. We should make it a goal to take as much of the rest of life with us as is humanly possible.
