"An idea, a relationship, can go extinct, just like an animal or a plant. The idea in this case is nature, the separate and wild province, the world apart from man to which he adapted, under whose rules he was born and died."
An Idea Can Go Extinct is Bill McKibben's impassioned, groundbreaking account of how, by changing the earth's entire atmosphere, the weather and the most basic forces around us, 'we are ending nature.'
Penguin Book's 'Green Ideas' series brings together twenty classics of the environmental movement. Together, these books show the richness of environmental thought and point the way to a fairer, saner, greener world.
