The conclusions in this book are speculative. They are based, however, on a great deal of literature review and consultation with experts in many different fields. Others will surely come to different conclusions regarding the mechanism, timing and nature of our next speciation event. Please share them on this blog. From time to time I will invite some of the experts referenced in the book to contribute, but do not feel you need to be such an expert to participate. Informed views from anyone are welcomed.
