Excellent article on Nature Conservancy’s chief scientist, Peter Kareiva

Kareiva is spelling out the science-based basics of a Green agenda for this century---quite different from what guided us back in the 1900s.

Maybe "be alarmed, not alarmist", should be the new refrain.

The devaluing of biodiversity is troubling, however. Aren't diverse systems more resilient to perturbation?

Good article highlighting a necessary shift to practical solutions to our human created problems. However, from a "people person" perspective ( I understand my fellow homo sapiens sapiens pretty well.....) and since he's in a position of influence, keep your eye on the emotional creep of his identification with his humble working man background. I've got one of those, and when I give in to it too much, well, there's a bit of personal progress regression which environmental protection may not be able to afford at this point. (Like when crazy cousin Ed, is constantly mooching and it's sad, but suddenly I find that I'm broke). Also beware the obsessive: "Nearly all of Kareiva's peers say he never seems to sleep; he used to get by on doughnuts and Jolt, an energy drink." All in all, we need him, and I respect his ability to get to a reasonable place of compromise. Just watch and wait.
I wonder if this guy will get the Bjørn Lomborg treatment
