Biodiversity Necessities

Flamingo landingSometimes it seems the cost of progress will be a barren planet earth. If we don't heat the place up beyond the point where it sustains life we'll kill off most life apart from ourselves anyway. With species going extinct at an estimated 1,000 times the natural rate, how much longer can that go on without our becoming permanently, critically impoverished? The Convention on Biological Diversity labors in semi-obscurity, overshadowed by its sibling on Climate Change, but both together represent the only path we've got to get out of trouble. Thus it's a real honor and a privilege to talk with Dr. Ahmed Djoghlaf, the Executive Secretary of the CBD, a seasoned international diplomat and optimist who believes in humanity's survival instinct. Total runtime of forty nine minutes. Please listen carefully and spread the word.

Thanks for submitting my question. He is much more optimistic than I am regarding the situation. I don't believe technology will save us...actually, I think it has served to speed us on our way to the edge of the cliff.
