Since the mid-1970s the views of the radical environmentalist movement has increasingly depicted the human race as the despoiler and destroyer of the planet. The speaker notes with some irony that this same mindset which takes a dim view of the role played by the human species as it relates to nature, also claims that human beings are the last best hope of “saving the planet.” In this presentation, Stephan Hoeller presents an alternative view to radical environmentalism, exploring how humans fit into nature. 1995. 60 minutes.
