Bursting The Reality Bubble with Ziya Tong
Author and science broadcaster Ziya Tong shows how our limited human senses give us a warped perspective of reality. As a society, Tong argues, we operate with blinders on as well. As she notes, in the 21st century, there are cameras everywhere, except where our food comes from, our energy comes from, and where our waste goes. By examining ten of humanity’s biggest blind spots Tong puts a spotlight on how our species’ industrialized life support system has come to jeopardize life on earth itself.
