This one isn’t about environmental history, it is very much about the present and the future. I just finished watching a movie (more of a documentary) called “Racing Extinction” and I still have tears in my eyes as I write this post. It is a documentary about how our activities are causing probably the greatest extinction of life in Earth’s history.
