A Wild Solution for Climate Change
Our planet’s biology and its climate are inexorably coupled. Warmer and less predictable climates will continue to diminish the planet’s biodiversity. But biological systems can be part of a solution. Conservation biology pioneer Thomas Lovejoy will examine the present and possible future impacts of climate change and explore how we might manage both biological and human economic systems to reduce the long-term effects of climate change.
Thomas Lovejoy, Senior Fellow United Nations Foundation and University Professor of Environmental Science and Policy at George Mason University
