The Wizard and The Prophet

Today we're beginning our environmentalism segment with our presentation on The Wizard and the Prophet.

From the best-selling, award-winning author of 1491 and 1493, an incisive portrait of two little-known twentieth-century scientists, Norman Borlaug and William Vogt, whose diametrically opposed views shaped our ideas about the environment, laying the groundwork for how people in the twenty-first century will choose to live in tomorrow's world.

This panel features Charles Mann, author and correspondent for The Atlantic, Science and Wired in conversation with Corby Kummer, Senior Editor at The Atlantic, restaurant critic, and author.
