Civilization Critical looks at the big picture and the long term. It tackles the big questions and big ideas of history and the modern world: how food systems work, the spread of railways, the rise of industry, the dawn of the consumer age, the transformative effects of the steam engine, and how we wrest fuels from the Earth.
Returning this year is John Kempf, one of the most requested speakers from the last 5 years. John will focus on nutrient dynamics, providing insight into how to reduce fertilizer input costs through soil and plant health.
