September 27, 2013 – “Countdown: Our Last, Best Hope for a Future On Earth?”

My guest on this program is Alan Weisman. He is the author of the critically acclaimed 2007 book The World Without Us, which envisions what the earth would be like absent a human presence, and how it might heal in our absence. His most recent book is Countdown: Our Last, Best Hope for a Future on Earth?, published just this week, which is a followup to the previous book and is a powerful investigation into the chances for humanity’s future.
