Garrett Jones speaking at the 2011 Winter Intelligence Conference at Oxford University, hosted by the Future of Humanity Institute
Civilization’s health hangs on how we manage food, water, energy, and climate. Two conflicting visions dominate how we think about them. Each vision had an original creator and exemplar—the “prophet” William Vogt, author of "Road to Survival", and the “wizard” Norman Borlaug, mastermind of The Green Revolution in agriculture. The prophet says to repent and cut back on everything; the wizard says that clever enough innovation can always find a way forward.
Examine both visionaries and their visions closely, and a way to proceed emerges that combines alert caution with bold invention.
Charles C. Mann is the author of the 2006 book "1491", about the Americas before Columbus, and the 2012 book "1493", about the Americas after Columbus. His previous SALT talk: http://longnow.org/seminars/02012/apr/23/living-homogenocene-first-500-years/, in April 2012, was about “the Homogenocene."
"The Wizard and the Prophet" was given on January 22, 02018 as part of Long Now’s Seminar series. The series was started in 02003 to build a compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking from some of the world’s leading thinkers.

Alcohol - the Good, the Bad, the Alternative, brought to you by Professor David Nutt and Drug Science.
Professor David Nutt, Doctor Christian Jessen and Adrian Chiles in a wide-ranging, frank and open conversation on the topic of alcohol – exploring such topics as their own relationship with alcohol, a ‘healthy’ amount of units a week, binge vs regular drinking, self-medication, health and social ‘benefits’ and harms, the hypocrisy of current regulation, David’s invention of a calorie free, non-toxic synthetic alcohol, and whether or not any of us would want to live in a world where no one drank.
Dr Christian is an award-winning TV presenter and medical doctor. His main aim is to help raise medical awareness and simplify, demystify de-stigmatise and explain the sometimes complicated and inaccessible world of medicine to the public.
Adrian Chiles is a radio & TV presenter. In his 2018 BBC documentary ‘Drinkers like me’ Adrian takes a long hard look at his own love of boozing.
Drug Science is the leading independent scientific body on drugs in the UK. We work to provide clear, evidence-based information without political or commercial interference.

Speaker(s): Professor Paul Collier Chair: Dr Jonathan Leape
Recorded on 4 November 2013 in Old Theatre, Old Building.
Mass international migration is a response to extreme global inequality, and immigration has a profound impact on the way we live. Yet our views - and those of our politicians - remain caught between two extremes: popular hostility to migrants and ‘open doors’ insistence by liberal and business elites. Collier takes a balanced look at the possibilities and challenges of migration for societies of origin and host countries, to enable us all, including policy-makers, understand how much migration is best.
Paul Collier is Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government at Oxford University and a former director of Development Research at the World Bank. He is the author of, among others, the award-winning The Bottom Billion and The Plundered Planet.
This event marks the launch of his new book, Exodus: How Migration Is Changing Our World.
