Endangered Planet is a timely examination of the state of the earth's ecosystems. Today, humans influence every natural habitat on the planet. The consequences can be devastating—dozens of species are wiped out each year, coasts and oceans are fouled with oil spills, and grasslands and forests are destroyed to feed the appetite of modern agriculture. Endangered Planet also reveals how renewable energy, recycling, and wildlife protection will play a key role in the survival of Earth.
