Journalist Elizabeth Kolbert has built a solid reputation for best-selling books that track the growing science and political controversy surrounding climate change. Her latest Pulitzer-Prize winner, The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History, doubles as both a globe-trotting tour of the regions most affected by a warming planet, and as an investigation of the scientists working courageously to stop this looming threat. In this lecture provided by Google, Kolbert comments on a few of the book's most important points, including ocean acidification, the plight of endangered species in hard-hit areas, and various other indicators of the current "Anthropocene" age. As Kolbert poignantly argues, future historians may look at our dependence on fossil fuel in this era, and end up comparing humanity to the asteroid that decimated the dinosaurs.
