Elizabeth Kolbert interviewed on NPR’s “Democracy Now” about climate change and hurricanes Harvey and Irma.


Journalist Elizabeth Kolbert, staff writer at The New Yorker is best known for her Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History (Holt, 2014), in which she presents evidence for her belief that humans may be bringing about a sixth mass extinction. She asks: Can we arrest this process? What does the future look like on a biologically impoverished planet?
