On how fossil fuels are greening the earth

Matt Ridley is a favorite author of mine.  His book, The Rational Optimist , is a best-seller and a definite must-read in my opinion.  He has a very creative mind that seems to generate a lot of provocative ideas.  Here, Ridley gives a 19 minute talk on Reason.tv where he shares some fascinating thoughts on the relationship between industrial activity, economic wealth, and the 30-plus years of the "greening" of mother nature.
