SILENT EARTH Averting the Insect Apocalypse

by | Read by Dave Goulson

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Entomologist, bumblebee expert, and public scientist Dave Goulson narrates this audiobook in a pleasing British accent and non-dogmatic tone. His easy delivery of hard truths makes a powerful argument, which is subtitled "Averting the Insect Apocalypse." He presents his case for immediate and drastic action with the authority of a scientist who knows whereof he speaks, does the work, and shares his knowledge in a nuanced and balanced way. His sections on Monarch butterflies and bumblebees, as well as his insights on insecticides and GMOs, are nuanced, informed, and compelling. His final two chapters matter: One is a dystopian set piece on what the 2060s might be like if we don't act (awful), and the final chapter is on what could and should be done. Listen and learn.
