This Funzing Experience:
Humans are rather weak when compared with many other animals. We are not particularly fast and have no natural weapons. Yet we currently number nearly 7.5 billion and are set to rise to nearly 10 billion by the middle of this century. We have influenced almost every part of the Earth system and as a consequence are changing the global environmental and evolutionary trajectory of the Earth. Key to our success is our intelligence, and particular our social intelligence. So what was it in Africa that made us so smart and allowed us to take over the planet?
Mark Maslin is a Professor of palaeocli...matology and geography at University College London. He is a Royal Society Wolfson Research Scholar for his work on human evolution in East Africa. Maslin is a leading scientist with particular expertise in global and regional climatic change an has spent many years working in Africa to understand our origins. He has also written 11 books, over 50 popular articles and appears regularly on radio and television. He regular speaks at public events including the Hay Literature festival, Google talks, and Cheltenham Science Festival. His recent popular book 'Cradle of Humanity: why the changing landscape of Africa made us so smart' was published by OUP in 2017. He was included in Who’s Who for the first time in 2009.
