Benjamin Dancer teaching about The Sixth Extinction

Benjamin Dancer, author of the acclaimed eco-thriller PATRIARCH RUN, is featured on Colorado Public Radio again...this time for how he is helping his high school English students think through the math and issues surrounding sustainability and THE SIXTH EXTINCTION, as written about by Elizabeth Kolbert in her Pulitzer-Prize winning book. Scary and fascinating at the same time. Take a listen, then post your reactions in the comments below! How do we turn the problem of sustainability into an opportunity to, as Dancer says, "create the world that ought to be"?
