This chapter explores the growing intensity of our impacts on the natural systems that support us, emphasizing especially the critical importance of biological extinction in limiting both the Earth's productive capacity and our ability to innovate in the development of a sustainable planet in the future. Our destruction of nature is now proceeding at a staggering and unprecedented scale, but despite our ignorance we remain fully dependent on nature, and its end would clearly precipitate ours as well.

Keywords:   nature, biological extinction, Earth, sustainable development, human impact
