Half-Earth
History is not a prerogative of the human species, Edward O. Wilson declares in Half-Earth. Demonstrating that we blindly ignore the histories of millions of other species, Wilson warns us that a point of no return is imminent. Refusing to believe that our extinction is predetermined, Wilson has written Half-Earth as a cri de coeur, proposing that the only solution to our impending "Sixth Extinction" is to increase the area of natural reserves to half the surface of the earth. Half-Earth is a resounding conclusion to the best-selling trilogy begun by the "splendid" (Financial Times) The Social Conquest of Earth (ISBN 978 0 87140 363 6) and "engaging and highly readable" (Times Higher Education) The Meaning of Human Existence (ISBN 978 0 87140 100 7).

İnsanoğlu hasbelkader edindiği bir takım entellektüel özellikleriyle kibirli ve umursamaz şekilde dünyanın tüm kaynaklarını diğer canlılara yaşam alanı bırakmamak üzere tüketiyor. 6. yokoluşa doğru tam gaz sürüklenirken neyse ki gerçeğe uyanan, hırsın henüz gözlerini kör etmediği bilim insanları kurtuluş için kafa yoruyor, bu kitap da onlardan birinin eseri, sorunun ana hatları ve çözüme dair öneriler. Bence önemli ve değerli bir kitap (en azından başlangıç için) #yarımdünya #edwardowilson
Every species still alive is precious to us. Naturalists live for our Lord God moment. We want to save the experience for all generations to come.
Aklımızda ekonomik büyüme, dizginlenmemiş tüketim, sağlık ve bireysel mutluluktan başka bir amaç olmadan, dehşet verici şekilde debelenip duruyoruz. Biyosferin geri kalanı üzerindeki etkimiz her yerde olumsuz, çevre dengesiz ve daha nahoş, uzun dönemli geleceğimiz ise daha az belirli bir hâl alıyor.
""We erase twigs and eventually whole branches of life’s family tree. Because each species is unique, we close the book on scientific knowledge that is important to an unknown degree but is now forever lost.""
Jaguarundis are a species of rare, elusive wildcats known to range naturally from the American tropics north and east to Texas. An introduced population in Florida and on the central Gulf Coast is possible.
""Over five hundred such species of bacteria live in the mouth and esophagus of the average human. By forming a well-adapted microbial rain forest, they protect this part of the body from harmful, parasitic species of bacteria. The price of failure in the symbiosis is an invasion of aliens, the buildup of dental plaque, tooth decay, and gum disease.""
""The biosphere does not belong to us; we belong to it. The organisms that surround us in such beautiful profusion are the product of 3.8 billion years of evolution by natural selection. We are one of its present-day products, having arrived as a fortunate species of Old World primates. And it happened only a geological eyeblink ago. Our physiology and our minds are adapted for life in the biosphere, which we have only begun to understand. We are now able to protect the rest of life, but instead we remain recklessly prone to destroy and replace a large part of it.""
