Volker  Angres, Claus-Peter  Hutter - Nature Falling Silent


The dramatic outcome of the extinction of our native wildlife

It is becoming silent and lonely all around us as we humans destroy the very basis of our existence: over 80 percent of our insects has disappeared, thousands of square kilometres of hedgerows and other habitats have been destroyed in recent years, marine animals are contaminated with plastic – the diversity of life is massively under threat.

Claus-Peter Hutter and Volker Angres reveal the reasons for this extinction of wildlife, point to what is behind it and name those responsible – in particular industrialised agriculture with its excessive use of pesticides and endless monocultures. They make it abundantly clear that it is high time for something to be done – they say what exactly, point to examples of how biological diversity has been saved and sow a grain of hope in the face of this apocalyptical development.

"The authors show in an unsparing way what has gone amiss all these years. This is truly a very interesting, fascinating, and thought-provoking book."
