Interesting that Burkey is actually permitted to ask such a question in a relatively mainstream forum. Equally interesting is his statement that he's not necessarily interested in saving Homo sapiens, but rather preserving as much of present-day biodiversity as possible.

But he's asking the wrong question as a starting point. "Can we get people to be different than they are?" assumes that the collapse of the Earth system can be stopped. If Burkey spent more time with the science and less with theories of human behavior he'd be in a better position to answer his larger question.

@ Dave, yes, by all means get in touch with this guy, if you feel like it. Personally I doubt you'll be able to have much of an impact on the conversation, though it'd be nice to see you prove me wrong.
