Big History and the Future of Humanity – E-bok – Fred Spier () | Bokus

Spier paints a picture of humanity as gifted by evolutionary accident and fortuitous circumstances to ultimately control the global environment for our own benefit, at least until the nonrenewable resources that have enabled our rapid increase in societal complexity become too expensive, and we can no longer dispose of our waste in ways that don’t seriously harm us along with the wild species we’ve forced to die and suffer from it.
