    Perhaps it's only shows the parts NOT being deforested as 'untouched'.

    The findings could be used to support the push to set aside half of Earth for nature, its authors say.
    I'm pretty sure we'll find a way to exploit/pollute/muck-up those places too.

    I put it my Amazon cart to consider, found out it was 'free', due to previous purchases on my Amaz card, so I got it!
    Already delivered, and all my reading time is now officially 'occupied'.
    This thing is INTENSE.

    Easton Press makes beautiful leather-bound high-quality books - I own quite a few, some autographed by their authors, such as Vonnegut, Nixon, Woodward & Bernstein, and one Roger Bannister. But most/all of their books are copies of books already available in normally priced editions. Including the Smithsonian's World War II Map by Map, available new on Amazon for the low low price of $25.84.

    It does look interesting, but at $180, a little too pricey for me.
    They missed their prime audience. Fifty years ago, in 1970, with WW2 25 years in the rearview mirror, it'd have been enormously popular, as veterans and their families would be ready for it.
    Now it's just a historical curiosity, albeit a fascinating one.
