Lord Martin Rees was interviewed on The Science Show on ABC's Radio National on his new book, On the Future:
"He wrote a contentious book called Our Last Century and it was supposed to have a question mark after the title – but the publishers left it off. Now, Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal, former President of the Royal Society and former Master of Trinity College in Cambridge, has given us an even more contentious and worrying document: On the Future, Prospects for Humanity. He tackles the lot: population, climate, asteroids, biodiversity and those lab-made germs that might escape or be used by villains on purpose. Lord Rees is measured, analytical and formidably well-informed. This is his take on our future."
