Description:

In conversation with Ursula K. Heise, professor of English and faculty, UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability

Weisman offers a long awaited follow-up to The World Without Us, his brilliant thought experiment that considered how the Earth could heal if relieved of humanity’s constant pressures.
