Veteran environmental activist and Whale Wars host Paul Watson offers in this interview a provocative and revolutionary view of the state of an environment in crisis. The planet may survive our environmental destruction, he argues, but humans may not. Focused on protecting oceans, preventing the loss of biodiversity, and promoting individual action, Watson’s singular call to arms challenges the typical talking points of the modern environmental movement.
