The destruction of nature is considered a recent phenomenon. But long before the industrial revolution, what we believed to be the untouched nature, or the perfect poem, was not perfect anymore. When the paleontologists started to dig up fossils, they revealed an extremely rich megafauna that became extinct as the human beings colonized the different continents. With a profound knowledge on ecology, and in a very captivating way, Fernando Fernandez explains how the wild economic growth of the human overpopulation in a planet with finite resources implies the loss of biodiversity, of ecological services, and of the quality of life of its inhabitants – both humans and non-humans. He also presents profound considerations about our relationship with the other living beings.
