Spoils of science? Frank von Hippel, Professor of Ecotoxicology at Northern Arizona University

George Bernard Shaw once said that science never solves a problem without creating ten more. Fast-forward ninety years, and that quip takes on a rather grim meaning, considering that, according to this week’s guest, there’s not a single uncontaminated square centimeter left on our planet. Have we reached the point when science does more harm than good? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Frank von Hippel, Professor of Ecotoxicology at Northern Arizona University and author of The Chemical Age: How Chemists Fought Famine and Disease, Killed Millions and Changed Our Relationship with the Earth.
