Have We Become Too Arrogant?
In one of the more dry TED Talks I’ve seen, Cary Fowler discusses his ideas about the need for biodiversity and his work to preserve it. However, as I listen to Cary, I wonder if we’ve become so arrogant that we think that the only solution to the world’s problems is for us (human beings) to “fix it”. Granted, we do our part to mess it up, but is the way to avoid agricultural extinction really to take one of everything and put it into a frozen hole in the ground? It seems odd to me. Then again, I’m reminded that Noah was called upon to perform a very similar act for the animal population. Maybe Cary Fowler is the new Noah!
