Historian Nathaniel Philbrick on His Book "Why Read Moby-Dick?"

Host Gene Bradley interviews historian Nathaniel Philbrick about his book "Why Read Moby-Dick?" 

Moby-Dick is perhaps the greatest of the Great American Novels, yet its length and esoteric subject matter create an aura of difficulty that too often keeps readers at bay. In his National Book Award- winning bestseller, "In the Heart of the Sea," Nathaniel Philbrick unpacked the story of the wreck of the whaleship Essex, the real-life incident that inspired Melville to write Moby- Dick. Now, he sets his sights on the fiction itself, offering a cabin master’s tour of a spellbinding novel rich with adventure and history.

Living on the Ice Shelf, Humanity's Melt Down

Categories:
program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Sun, 06/29/2008

Host Per Fagereng interviews Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums and In Praise of Barbarians.

He discusses his latest article, "Living on the Ice Shelf, Humanity's Melt Down".

Davis says, "Our world, our old world that we have inhabited for the last 12,000 years, has
ended, even if no newspaper in North America or Europe has yet printed its
scientific obituary. This February, while cranes were hoisting cladding to the
141st floor of the Burj Dubai tower (which will soon be twice the height of the
Empire State Building), the Stratigraphy Commission of the Geological Society of
London was adding the newest and highest story to the geological column."

It turns out that the Holocene -- that recent inter-glacial warm interval
when we made ourselves at home on this planet -- is so all over. Welcome to the
Anthropocene, an Earth epoch defined by the emergence of urban-industrial
society as a geological force -- and get used to it.

In this post, Davis considers just how dire things are on our small,
warming planet (dire indeed!) and lays out in no uncertain terms just why those
who are hoping to rely on market mechanisms and carbon trading as a solution to
global warming are bound to be deeply disappointed.
