Environment Program explores climate change debate

March 15, 2013

The Loyola University New Orleans Environment Program is hosting a lecture on the climate change debate Tuesday, March 19 at 7 p.m. in Bobet Hall, room 214. University of Colorado at Boulder professor Michael Zimmerman, Ph.D., is the featured speaker, and a Q-and-A session will follow his talk.

The climate change debate has become the focal point of an ongoing clash between the modern and “green” worldviews. Zimmerman will examine this debate as it relates to cultural development, and how both sides might move forward to find the common ground needed to foster alternatives to a carbon-based economy.

Zimmerman is an integral theorist and author of several articles and books in his field, including “Contesting Earth's Future: Radical Ecology and Postmodernity,” “Environmental Philosophy: From Animal Rights to Radical Ecology” and “Integral Ecology: Using Multiple Perspectives on the Natural World.”
