About 5 years ago I came up with the idea of a book about how planets die. [O]nly by committing half of the planets surface to nature can we hope to save the immensity of life-forms that compose it.

Half-Earth proposes an achievable plan to save our imperiled biosphere: devote half the surface of the Earth to nature.

In order to stave off the mass extinction of species, including our own, we must move swiftly to preserve the biodiversity of our planet, says Edward O. Wilson in. I once wrote a book for Time/Life, a popular book on planets, and I would say, “Here’s the relevant data; some people think this is the explanation, some people think that is the explanation.”.
