Paul Ehrlich Interviewed by Robyn Williams (Audio)

Paul Ehrlich talks about his new book – One With Nineveh. He reminds us that agriculture began in a fertile land, around Nineveh, in what is now the Middle East, which is now desert. What lessons of ecological neglect does this teach us? Dr Ehrlich, Bing Professor of Biology at Stanford University in California, also gives a diagnosis of President George W Bush’s mental capacities and the prospects of his old boss at Stanford, Condoleeza Rice, in her new job.
