Buckminister Fuller on Ecology - 1968

S03-E11 We feature a talk by Mr. Buckminster Fuller he gave in 1968. He spoke at  the American Medical Association entitled, "What Quality of Environment Do We Want?" He begins by speaking of the earth as if it were a spaceship, with the sun being the closest "gas station," the next nearest being 100,000 times as far away. He reviews a few ways of looking at what we do to our environment, speaking of combustion engines, the role of television in development, the terminology of the past (and unlearning the misinformation that goes along with it), and the organization of cities. He winds the speech up with a review of the work of Dr. Benjamin Bloom of Chicago. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a biography of Mr. Fuller, and second, an overview of the geodesic dome which is attributed to Mr. Fuller Let us now tune our radio dial to 1968 and listen to Mr. Fuller as he forecasts the future for the ecology movement to transform the earth.
