Today on Radioactivity Rob Lorei speaks with Elizabeth Kolbert who writes of a massive move toward extinction about the mass die-off of millions of bats in the Northeast; one-third of all reef-building corals, a third of all fresh-water mollusks, a third of sharks and rays, a quarter of all mammals, a fifth of all reptiles and a sixth of all birds are headed towards oblivion,” she writes. Her new book is called THE SIXTH EXTINCTION (Henry Holt).
