During the past 30 years, almost 75% of the world's insects have disappeared. Many species have irreversibly ceased to exist. Several scientists speak of the beginning of the sixth great species extinction of our planet. What makes it more shocking, is that this massive loss of species is man-made, and: it will have consequences for ALL inhabitants of the earth. What are the causes behind this and just what are the consequences? High-profile scientists from all corners of the globe supply very frightening and startling answers. Until now, the gradual decline in bee populations has only attracted attention due to the fear of fruit growers' harvest losses. But the extinction of insects is by far more extensive and consequential than anyone has hitherto thought.
