Host Per Fagereng interviews Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums and In Praise of Barbarians.

He discusses his latest article, "Living on the Ice Shelf, Humanity's Melt Down".

Davis says, "Our world, our old world that we have inhabited for the last 12,000 years, has
ended, even if no newspaper in North America or Europe has yet printed its
scientific obituary. This February, while cranes were hoisting cladding to the
141st floor of the Burj Dubai tower (which will soon be twice the height of the
Empire State Building), the Stratigraphy Commission of the Geological Society of
London was adding the newest and highest story to the geological column."
