Our Health Interdependence With The Planet


Is the Earth trying to tell us something? A few people have asked that question out loud when taking stock of increasingly severe weather events and non-weather events like the COVID-19 pandemic.

That is the avenue of inquiry Dominick DellaSalla, William Ripple, and Franz Baumann pursue in a recent article published in The New Republic, "Public Health Depends on a Healthy Planet."

We investigate the core of their argument in an interview with DellaSalla and Baumann. DellaSalla leads the Geos Institute in Ashland; Baumann is a researcher at New York University.
