Is nature really “fragile”? Is environmentalism too much like a religion? Should conservation embrace GMOs and technology? Are many of conservation’s heroes actually worth our admiration?
Watch the video above to see Nature Conservancy Chief Scientist Peter Kareiva puncture some of the most cherished green myths around in this late May talk to the Long Now Foundation in San Francisco.
(The talk expresses Peter Kareiva’s views and not necessarily the positions of The Nature Conservancy. The talk begins right after the short, weird animated film. To watch the entire talk and Q&A session, click on the WATCH FULL PROGRAM button in the lower right of the player.)
