Matthias  Glaubrecht - The End of Evolution


Our time is running out – only a few decades left until the end of nature

Everyone is finally talking about climate change. But as alarming as it has become, it is only a sideshow in the face of the apocalyptic horsemen who are currently sweeping the earth in an act of devastation: population explosion, resource depletion, environmental degradation and species extinction.

In his analysis, which is as comprehensive as it is unnerving, renowned evolutionary biologist Matthias Glaubrecht sees a worldwide biological tragedy ahead, with the looming mass exitus, the greatest loss of species since the extinction of the dinosaurs. Humankind has thus become today the greatest predator and the decisive evolutionary factor that threatens the existence of all living beings – including its own.

Whether the end of evolution, which threatens to become a realistic scenario by the middle of the 21st century at the latest, can still be halted, will be decided solely by our actions in the decades immediately ahead.

"Maybe one of the most important books of the year."
