Kathryn interviews Author, Professor Brian Buma PhD.Climate change, shrinking wildlife habitats, rising sea levels, and vanishing species. These are big, important ideas that deserve a proper exploration. National Geographic Explorer Brian Buma PhD lucidly pairs the science of climate change with maps, infographics, and charts that make the complex information not only comprehensible, but compelling. This approach illustrates multifaceted ecological change with scientific clarity and aesthetic appeal in equal measure. Nature itself charts the course, with chapters devoted to atmosphere, water, land, wildlife, and urban ecology. Buma tells a larger story about what drives environmental change, outlining the historical developments behind each topic and detailing their current state and possible future. Take this incredible journey and be inspired to act as an environmental steward in your everyday life. Buma is an Assistant Professor of Integrative Biology, University of Colorado Denver.Kathryn also interviews Author Norman E. Rosenthal MD. Many people find poetry delightful, interesting and thought-provoking. According to Author Norman E. Rosenthal MD, poetry can also have the power to soothe, inspire, comfort and yes, even heal. In addition, poetry can act as a lens through which we can gaze into the parallel processes of the mind and brain and experience treasures that might otherwise be entirely hidden. He shares 50 inspiring poems designed to heal as well as bring joy into your life. Dr. Rosenthal is the world-renowned psychiatrist, researcher and NY Times best-selling author, who first described seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and pioneered the use of light therapy as a treatment during his twenty years at the National Institute of Mental Health. His work has been featured on Good Morning America, The Today Show, NPR and other national media.
