About the Talk
Earth Day is a time for humans to reflect on our place on our planet—reflect in terms of sciences, cultures, religions, and political economy. Twice in recent history, human technology has brought the Earth to a threat of unrecoverable harm. In this situation, the obligations of scientists are complex and difficult. This talk will discuss some precedents and possible sustainability practices for the future, focusing particularly on the situation in South Florida.
This talk is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Song Gao, Ph.D., associate professor at the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences, at (954) 262-8388.
