The Climate Pod

Jul 26, 2023

Throughout all of human history, we've been changing and adapting our landscape to advance our species. Obviously, this has often come at a great cost to the natural world and in more recent centuries, come with an extraordinary waste. So what can we learn from the long history of environmental consequences of human advancement? 

In Professor Mark Stoll's new book, Profit: An Environmental History, he looks at how we've refashioned ecosystems, diminished resources, and created a complicated relationship between humans live and the world around them. In this conversation, we explore some of those biggest moments in history and how it should guide our thinking now. 

Mark Stoll is Professor of Environmental History at Texas Tech University.
