In the March episode of Nature Bats Last on PRN.FM co-hosts McPherson and Hester interview the legendary, Professor Paul Ehrlich. The episode is embedded here
Dr Ehrlich is the Bing Professor of Population Studies in the Department of Biology of Stanford University and president of Stanford’s Center for Conservation Biology . He is a renowned biologist and ecologist best known for his warnings about the consequences of human population growth.
I drew reference to the February 19, 2018 paper in Science Daily titled; Biodiversity loss raises risk of ‘extinction cascades’
At the beginning of the interview Paul said that everything is unfolding ‘faster than previously thought’. Bare that in mind when reading this article from The Guardian quoting Paul last year; Paul Ehrlich: ‘Collapse of civilisation is a near certainty within decades’. Now we are talking years…….. if we’re lucky considering the Arctic Sea Ice decline and it’s implications; President Niinistö in North Russia: ‘If We Lose the Arctic, We Lose the World’
Wediscussed Paul Ehrlich and Sandra Kahn’s recent book JAWS, you can find more information on this important book here:
