Dominant Animal by Paul R. Ehrlich

Book Description

In humanity's more than 100,000 year history, we have evolved from vulnerable creatures wresting sustenance from Earth to a sophisticated global society manipulating every inch of it. In short, we have become the dominant animal. But there's a flip side of this triumphant story of innovation and conquest. As we clear forests to raise crops and build cities, lace the continents with highways, and create chemicals never before seen in nature, we may be undermining our own supremacy.Renowned Stanford scientists Paul R. Ehrlich and Anne H. Ehrlich believe that intelligently addressing today's great environmental and social challenges requires a clear understanding of how we evolved and how we're changing the planet. "The Dominant Animal" offers readers that knowledge, tracing the interplay between environmental change and genetic and cultural evolution since the dawn of humanity. Tackling the fundamental challenge of the human predicament, Paul and Anne Ehrlich offer a vivid and unique exploration of our origins, our evolution, and our future.
