Evolution: Facing the Future, Looking to the Past 進化:展望未來,溯古尋源

Forged by natural selection and honed by evolution, humans are perfectly adapted machines … for a world that no longer exists. In Unfit for Purpose: When Human Evolution Collides with the Modern World, biologist and broadcaster Professor Adam Hart explores the mismatch between our fundamental biology and the modern world we have created. Today he talks with Rebecca Wragg Sykes, author of Kindred: Neanderthal Life, Love, Death and Art about evolution, adaptability and what we might learn from how Neanderthals survived hundreds of thousands of years of climate change. Moderated by CNN Senior Writer, Sarah Lazarus. In ENGLISH, and available online 24 hours later with CHINESE subtitles.
