Tim Flannery Finds Hope

Tim Flannery is one of the country’s leading thinkers and writers…an internationally-acclaimed scientist, explorer and conservationist, not to mention former Australian of the Year. “Here on Earth” is Flannery’s first major book since “The Weather Makers”. In it, he takes a big-picture look at where we are as a species, and what we need to do in order to survive into the future. Flannery draws on Darwin, Wallace and Lovelock to discuss evolution, co-evolution and the issue of sustainability, in the broadest sense.

And, as he tells the National Press Club, it’s ultimately a message of hope.
