We are facing three simultaneous crises in the world today: crises in energy, economy, and climate. These add up to the greatest challenge in all human history. Biologist Elisabet Sahtouris is optimistic about the future and points to biology saying, “Life gets creative in a time of crisis.” She explains how the survival of bacteria, which have been on the planet for over four billion years, has given us a model of how we may evolve into a mature species. In the best case scenarios in evolution there is a move towards cooperation and co-creation. She points out, “It is literally cheaper to feed your enemies than to kill them. And, in the best case scenario in evolution, those cooperative ventures become the next larger unity.” Join this fascinating conversation that gives us sound science and hope for our species and life on the planet.
