Understanding why extinctions matter

Russell McLendon beautifully explains one of my clichés: “when you unravel the web of life, we also fall through the hole.”

His essay goes from the practical to the sublime, and is a must-read.

If you have the time, you should also read my submission to the Australian Senate on the same topic, and an earlier Conversation essay on the same set of concerns.

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
