The story of life has a complex cast of characters, says Fred Singer, and many of those characters are being lost because of poor judgment and "our own astounding biological success."
The Radford University retired biology professor talked to With Good Reason Radio in 2011 about the Earth's radically changing environment and the challenges posed by a population that has expanded to 7 billion people and counting.
Singer also talked on the program, which will be rebroadcast July 19-25, about writing his new ecology textbook, which he said he hoped would bring awareness to environmental issues.
Listeners in the New River Valley can hear Singer on With Good Reason at 6 p.m., Tuesday, July 22 on Public Radio WVRU 89.9.
