The environmental movement has helped produce significant improvements in the world around us—from cleaner air to the preservation of natural wonders such as Yellowstone. But in recent years, environmental activists have arisen who regard humans as Public Enemy #1. In this provocative e-book, Wesley J. Smith exposes efforts by radical activists to reduce the human population by up to 90% and to grant legal rights to animals, plants, and Mother Earth. Smith argues that the ultimate victims of this misanthropic crusade will be the poorest and most vulnerable among us, and he urges us to defend both human dignity and the natural environment before it is too late.

Frightening but also engrossing. Lawyer Wesley Smith chronicles the extreme anti-human agenda of a growing number of public officials, journalists, movie-makers, and environmental activists. Proposals once considered extreme (like legal rights for plants) are now becoming common place in Switzerland, South America, and even the United States. Smith appreciates and applauds the many good contributions of environmentalism (and agrees that we should treat animals humanely), but he shows how pernicious to human flourishing the new effort to demonize humanity as a "cancer on the planet" will be. Anyone interested in public policy or environmental politics will want to read this. The book also contains a link to a free documentary of the same name featuring Smith.
