author of The Red Queen, Genome, The Rational
Optimist and other books, dropped by Reason’s studio in Los
Angeles last month to talk about a curious global trend that is
just starting to receive attention. Over the past three decades,
our planet has gotten greener!
Even stranger, the greening of the planet in recent decades
appears to be happening because of, not despite, our
reliance on fossil fuels. While environmentalists often talk about
how bad stuff like CO2 causes bad things to happen like global
warming, it turns out that the plants aren’t complaining.
Approximately 18 minutes.
Produced by Paul Feine and Alex Manning.
