On the October 9th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with UC Berkeley biologist Anthony Barnosky about his new book, Dodging Extinction: Power, Food, Money, and the Future of Life on Earth. He writes that unless we rethink how we run our global ecosystem, where we get our food, and how we make our money, we will trigger the sixth great extinction. What can be done to halt this looming crisis? Join the conversation with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Anthony Barnosky, professor in the Department of Integrative Biology, Curator in the Museum of Paleontology, and Research Paleoecologist in the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at the University of California, Berkeley
