  • Up Close: Ashlee Vance and Robin Wall Kimmerer

    by TJC Staff
    Play

    This week on Up Close, our human ambitions have brought our civilization to literally unprecedented heights — but with great damage to the world we live in. Where do we go next?

    To Mars, argues Silicon Valley billionaire Elon Musk, who’s created a remarkably successful space company and an electric car company, and so much more. Joining us is Bloomberg Businessweek reporter Ashlee Vance, who is the author of Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for Fantastic Future.

    But in an approach that’s literally more down to earth, one botanist suggests that Native American heritage can guide us to a better coexistence with nature, if we can understand gratitude and generosity. Robin Wall Kimmerer is a professor at the State University of New York and founder and director of the Center for Native Peoples and the Environment, and the author of Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants, which is now out in paperback.
