Joshua Klein asks how many have seen “The Birds?” Did it freak you out? You may want to turn this clip off.
No one seems to be paying attention to the species that aren’t going extinct. Many of them — such as rats and cockroaches — have hyperadapted to living alongside humans. By trying to get rid of them, we have caused them to evolve to be even more parasitic.
As a crow enthusiast, Klein has developed a vending machine for these birds. The idea is that the crows will pick up our litter for us, in return for peanuts from Klein’s machines.
