The century of the environment and biology

Watch the commencement speech by Dr. E.O. Wilson at UNC last weekend.  It is short and excellent.  He talks about the conflicts between our stone age emotions, our medieval institutions and our god like technology, about biodiversity and the urgent need to transform how we protect and manage the living world.

“There has been proportionately much less attention paid to the living environment and especially to the diversity of life”
