Re: Whom would you like to interview, and what would you ask?
Richard Cizik: Arguably the most famous scientist in America is Edward O. Wilson, and he’s written a book called “Creation” in which he suggests that the world of religion and science together are the most important constituencies in America. And I guess what I would ask Dr. Wilson is this: If we don’t act, what is the result? And if we do act on these issues of climate change, pollution, species extinction, habitat destruction, the spread of human infectious diseases . . . If we do act, what will it mean for human life on earth? And of course the reverse is obvious. If we don’t, what will we face?
