The Last Tree on Easter Island

Brand: Penguin Books   |   Status: Còn hàng

"A short book which presents evidence-backed theories of how the supposed nonchalant and egoistic Easter islanders of the past have brought down their own civilization. Years of overconsumption have left them destitute, so much so that they had to resort to cannibalism. What was once home to subtropical forests filled with an abundance of flora and fauna, is now left barren with not a single tree left standing!" - Goodread

In twenty short books, Penguin brings you the classics of the environmental movement.

This is Jared Diamond's haunting account of visiting the mysterious stone statues of Easter Island, showing how a remote civilization destroyed itself by exploiting its own natural resources - and why we must heed this warning.

Over the past 75 years, a new canon has emerged. As life on Earth has become irrevocably altered by humans, visionary thinkers around the world have raised their voices to defend the planet, and affirm our place at the heart of its restoration. Their words have endured through the decades, becoming the classics of a movement. Together, these books show the richness of environmental thought, and point the way to a fairer, saner, greener world.
