Jared Diamond talked about his recent New York Times bestseller, “Collapse,” which discusses how societies choose to fail or succeed. He gave a sobering picture of the destruction of Easter Island’s ecosystem and society, as well as explaining his controversial theory for the genocide in Rwanda. Selena Rowan impressed us all by asking Dr. Diamond a question during the question and answer period.
