This was a special interview for me because I became aware of Paul Ehrlich and “the Population Bomb” way back in 1971 or 72. In fact, reading that was the very first contact with the environmental movement. It has taken a few years to come back again but that early exposure (when the population was less than 4 billion), has been hugely influential.
This was a special event for me because Prof. Ehrlich is very familiar with (and talks about) this part of the world – Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific islands.
Not only that but Prof. Ehrlich puts in a plug for Marlborough wines!
A wide-ranging conversation that fearlessly goes where most fear to tread.
