breathed their last, but for a very different reason....Us homo sapiens are
turning out to be as destructive a force as any asteroid. Earth’s intricate
web of ecosystems thrived for millions of years as natural paradises, until we
came along, paved paradise, and put up a parking lot. Our assault on nature is
killing off the very things we depend on for our own lives....The stark
reality is that there are simply too many of us, and we consume way too much,
especially here at home....It will take a massive global effort to make things
right, but the solutions are not a secret: control population, recycle, reduce
consumption, develop green technologies."<br />
