Christopher Lloyd takes a deep history look at some of his 100 Species that have Changed the World, from his book The Story of the World in 100 Species. It’s a fun-packed ride explaining how nature works when there are no humans and then moves on to showing how humans have changed the rules for survival since the dawn of agriculture. He ends with a metaphor for the importance of biodiversity using a railway track, a candle and two plastic champagne glasses. Intrigued? You should be!
