Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

On death, change and new forms of life at the end of wilderness.


If we accept that all of the ecological and evolutionary processes on the planet are processes of dynamic change, then many of the things that are changed can be regarded rather than as a problem, as nature responding to - and in some senses healing itself, from the environmental change that we've been generating.

Conservation biologist Chris D. Thomas finds new forms of life born into this warming world - as (some) species adapt to the new conditions created by climate change, humans must adapt the way we view and interact with nature to reflect a new understanding of time, change and stewardship of the natural world.

Chris is the author of Inheritors of the Earth: How Nature Is Thriving in an Age of Extinction from PublicAffairs.
