Bionic Planet: Your Guide to the New Reality
About This Show
Earth. We broke it; we own it; and nothing is as it was: not the trees, not the seas – not the forests, farms, or fields – and not the global economy that depends on all of these.
Bionic Planet is your guide to the Anthropocene, the new epoch defined by man's impact on Earth, and in each episode, we examine a different aspect of this new reality: sometimes financial, sometimes moral, but always practical.

031 How Nature Can Get Us 37 Percent Of The Way To The Paris Climate Target
Today I speak with Bronson Griscom, Director of Forest Carbon Science for the Nature Conservancy.
He headed up a team of three dozen researchers from almost two dozen institutions who identified 20 low-cost, natural "pathways" that can get us 37 percent of the way to meeting the Paris Climate Agreement targets -- sometimes at no cost, sometimes at just $10 per ton, and often while increasing food yields and reducing the cost of farming.
