Eben Kirksey: Emergent Ecologies--Serendipitous Happenings in the Environment
In an age where most of humanity is very snugly set in its artificial and destructive ways, the thought of trying to actually restore nature to its former glory may seem farfetched or hopeless. But one scientist isn’t giving up hope, Eben Kirksey, author of the book Emergent Ecologies believes that while there may not be a return to the way things were, that the new species and ecosystems springing up around us may be something to celebrate. He shows us that with a little thoughtful care, humanity’s mistakes could become serendipitous opportunities for growth.—Original airdate: 7/25/2016
