This is an excellent summary of a lot of recent research. We tend to ignore things that we don’t think are relevant to us. When you are at the top who wants to study the things that destroyed others who were there?
I will check the book you mentioned. We are not unique nor are we immune to the consequences of what we do to our environment. The only difference now is that this moves quickly to the entire planet. And we still think of only our own mud puddle as if that is the world.
