Everything Is Connected - 23 October

From TED Radio Hour, 7:06 pm on 23 October 2016

Everything is Connected

TED speakers explain how everything in nature is connected, and how we can restore its delicate balance.
'The more humble we are in the face of our experience with the natural world ... the more we're going to find a healthy coexistence with it.'  Bernie Krause, bioacoustician

Every species plays a crucial role in our natural world. But when humans tinker with the equation, a chain reaction can cause entire ecosystems to break down. In this hour, TED speakers explain how everything is connected in nature, with some bold ideas about how we can restore the delicate balance and bring disappearing ecosystems back.
George Monbiot: Can "Rewilding" Restore Vanishing Ecosystems?
Jane Poynter: What Lessons Came Out Of Biosphere 2?
Bernie Krause: How Does Listening To Nature Teach Us About Changing Habitats?
Marla Spivak: Why Are Bees Disappearing?
