We talk with Alan Weisman, author of the number one best-selling book The World Without Us, and keynote speaker at this weekend’s Midwest Renewable Energy Fair. Weisman’s reports from around the world have appeared in Harper’s, The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, The Los Angeles Times Magazine, Vanity Fair and Audubon. Discussion will revolve around the book’s intriguing thought experiment: an examination of what would happen to the Earth if the planet’s number one invasive species, human beings, disappeared.
