Beschreibung

For millennia, we lived in harmony with the Earth, taking only what we required to survive. But in just the past few centuries, we have used our powers to satisfy our obsession with consumption and new technology, without regard for the consequences. And in doing so, we have exploited our surroundings on an unprecedented scale. In this revised and updated edition of From Naked Ape to Superspecies, David Suzuki and Holly Dressel lucidly describe how we have evolved beyond our needs, trampling other species, believing that we can make the Earth work the way we want it to. And they introduce us to the people who are fighting back, those who are resisting the inexorable advance of the ",global economy", juggernaut, the people whose voices are difficult to hear over the din of corporate public relations machines. We learn about how human arrogancedemonstrated by our disregard for the small and microscopic species that constitute the Earths engine and our reckless use of technological inventions like powerful herbicides or genetically engineered cropsis threatening the health of our children and the safety of our food supply.
