Interview with Bill McKibben: Talking Biopolitics – Video


08-05-2012 18:14 Environmental activist and author Bill McKibben talks about why he wrote Enough: Staying Human in an Engineered Age (2003), how it was received, and what this experience might tell us about communicating and organizing in support of practices and policies addressing human biotechnology, both domestically and internationally. Bill also shares his thoughts about ways in which the issues of climate change and human biotech can be understood as facets of a single dynamic involving the technological manipulation and transformation of the natural world, including plants, animals, humans and ecosystems. Bill is interviewed by Center for Genetics and Society associate executive director Marcy Darnovsky. Talking Biopolitics is a series of live web-based conversations and webinar presentations with distinguished thought leaders. We ask questions – and take yours – about how we can put our vision of a new biopolitics on the public radar. The series is organized by the Center for Genetics and Society to accompany the Tarrytown Meetings. The Center for Genetics and Society is a nonprofit information and public affairs organization working to encourage responsible uses and effective societal governance of the new human genetic and reproductive technologies. We work with a growing network of scientists, health professionals, civil society leaders, and others.
