In this week episode Mark Nelson speaks with Joanna Harcourt-Smith and Jacob Aman about: earning the name "biospherian"; Vladimir Vernadsky and the planet-shaping power of life; Biosphere 2, doing whole systems science; "humans are the most unstable element in the ecosystem"; ecotechnics, bringing nature and technoloy into a mutually supportive relationship; longing for a reverential ecology; the dedication of the team overcame the group dynamics in a closed space; breaking the taboos of the reductionist, dispassionate science; the central, optimistic premise of the project; why Biosphere 2 was a threat to the industrial world; regenerating Nature and the human spirit; the visceral recognition of our belonging to the Earth.
