Paul Ehrlich presents
The Dominant Animal: Human Evolution and the Environment

How can a species with such extensive control over its environment be as careless as humans have been? Paul Ehrlich believes a better understanding of our evolution and our relationship with the planet is the key to answering this question and to correcting the mistakes we've made. Our genes, our culture and our environment have been interacting throughout the history of humanity and this three-way interplay is the focus of his newest book and this upcoming lecture.

The Seminars About Long-term Thinking were started in 02003 to build a coherent, compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking, to help nudge civilization toward Long Now's goal of making long-term thinking automatic and common instead of difficult and rare.

The Seminars are hosted by Stewart Brand.
