Climate change adversely affects biodiversity

May 17, 2019

 

A recent report released from the United Nations details the threat that climate change and human activities pose to hundreds of thousands of plant and animal species and their biodiversity. Professor Dan Kammen, appearing on KQED, details the intricate and intertwined relationship between humans and other species on the planet and how this impacts the future of both energy and biodiversity on Earth. “We can really bring the system back; but we have to commit to understanding that we’re part of nature, nature is not a part of us,” said Kammen.
