Ehrlich has famously sought to discover how humans and other species impact evolution, and how evolution impacts us.
He co-founded the field of co-evolution and sounded alarms about the consideration of environment and population growth in creating public policy.
Come hear a fascinating discussion on how we are affecting our environment and how we can positively impact our world.
Paul Ralph Ehrlich (born May 29, 1932 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is a Stanford University professor and a renowned entomologist specializing in Lepidoptera (butterflies). He is also well known as a researcher and author on the subject of human overpopulation.
Ehrlich has written numerous books on the subjects of ecology, entomology, overpopulation, and related subjects. His best known book is The Population Bomb, published in 1968.
Moira Gunn is host of the radio programs "Tech Nation" and "BioTech Nation," aired by National Public Radio. "Tech Nation" episodes are normally based on an interview with the author of a science- or technology-related book. "BioTech Nation" is based on interviews with significant figures in the field of bio-technology, as well as regular discussions with science journalist David Ewing Duncan.
"Tech Nation" and "BioTech Nation" programs are also published as podcasts by IT Conversations.
Gunn's early career included work at NASA on large-scale scientific computation and global communications, with special emphasis in infrared satellite image processing, computational fluid dynamics, and global climate and weather modeling. She also did work in robotics engineering at IBM, Morton Thiokol, United Technologies/Pratt and Whitney, Lockheed-Martin, Rolls-Royce, and the US Navy.
Gunn has a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Purdue University and an M.A. in computer science.
(born May 29, 1932, Philadelphia, Pa., U.S.) U.S. biologist. He studied at the University of Kansas and taught at Stanford University from 1959. Though much of his research was done in entomology, his overriding concern became unchecked population growth. His most influential work was The Population Bomb (1968). In 1990 he shared with Edward O. Wilson Sweden's prestigious Crafoord Prize.
At least I hear someone else say simple truths such as the difference between human being n1 and n2 is the "mélanine" percentage.
Interesting conversation, as usual with the Commonwealth Club.
Thank you so much for the kindness of sharing ! =)
