Extinction, “De-Extinction,” and Capitalism

What should we do in the face of the ongoing extinction crisis? What is rewilding, and how does it work? Is de-extinction, which involves the resurrection of extinct species, advisable? Ashley Dawson puts mass extinction and the various efforts to address it in a broader political-economic context. Dawson’s new book is Extinction: A Radical History.
