The Unnatural World with David Biello
Join David Biello, science curator at TED, longtime writer for Scientific American and author of The Unnatural World: The Race to Remake Civilization in Earth's Newest Age, to explore this new idea that human impacts on the planet have earned us a place in the geologic record. Biello will argue that we are indeed in a kind of Anthropocene, that this new epoch could prove bad or even good, as well as how we all might make it better.
