2/20/12: Saving the Planet in the Age of Humans

Salt Lake City, UT – Environmentalist Mark Lynas believes nature no longer runs the Earth. We do. Managing an entire planet isn't easy, but in his book God Species, Lynas aims to show how humans can tackle this monumental task. In doing so, he disposes with the environmentalist playbook, arguing that to save Earth from ourselves, humans can and should play God at a planetary level. He joins Doug on Monday to make his case for "jettisoning sacred cows" to solve the world's gravest ecological problems. (Rebroadcast).
