Butler_TomTom Butler is the editorial projects director of the Foundation for Deep Ecology and the volunteer board president of the Northeast Wilderness Trust, the only regional land trust in the northeastern U.S. focused exclusively on preserving forever-wild landscapes. As author or editor his books include Monte León National Park, Corcovado National Park: Chile’s Wilderness Jewel, Plundering Appalachia, ENERGY: Overdevelopment and the Delusion of Endless Growth, and the award-winning Wildlands Philanthropy: The Great American Tradition, a collaboration with photographer Antonio Vizcaíno, which celebrates forty extraordinary natural areas around the globe protected through private initiative. His latest book, co-edited with Eileen Crist and George Wuerthner, is Keeping the Wild: Against Domestication of the Earth (Island Press 2014), an anthology of writings that considers how the “Anthropocene”-oriented vision for the future of conservation is strategically and ethically dubious. Butler’s forthcoming book, Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot (2015) is a large-format work that visually depicts the way the human numbers and behavior have transformed the Earth.
