Oliver Milman, Environment Reporter, on Our Worlds Insect Crisis

Three out of four of the planet’s known animal species are insects, and their populations are crashing as a result of climate change, habitat loss, pesticides and pollution. These ecosystem-wide losses could have devastating consequences for humanity. Globally, one-third our food is pollinated annually by bees. We’ll talk with Oliver Milman about his new book, “The Insect Crisis” — and how we can protect what he calls “the miniature empires that hold life aloft on our raucous, plastic-strewn, beautiful planet.”
