Michael Pollan On Changing Our Relationship With The Natural World
In this talk from TED, Michael Pollan asks us to see things from a plant's-eye view and therefore to consider the possibility that nature isn't opposed to culture, that biochemistry rivals intellect as a survival tool. (He also wonders if edible grasses have encouraged us to destroy the forests to grow more grass. By mowing lawns we stop trees from growing!) Pollan argues that by merely shifting our perspective, he argues, we can heal the Earth.
