As we move off of debating the science of climate change, but given that we’ve been largely ineffectual thus far at slowing global climate change, it’s time to focus on how organizations can make wiser decisions in this time of great uncertainty. Expert Mark Trexler is the subject of this very timely blog post based on a video interview of April 23rd, 2016 in Portland, Oregon.
Today Earth Day, we introduce you to the teachings (video) of Ilarion (Larry) Merculieff (Aleut), Founder of the Global Center for Indigenous Leadership and Lifeways and Dr. Robin Kimmerer, SUNY distinguished teaching professor and Director, Center for Native Peoples and the Environment.
If you think technology is going to be the big fix for issues and problems associated with the availability, use, and conservation of water, especially in the context of global warming, you might want to balance that view with a better understanding of how important is the ethic of water by listening to seven thoughtful leaders from the Center for Humans and Nature as part of their project, Fostering a Water Ethic.
In this presentation (video*) Dr. Robin Kimmerer clearly and beautifully teaches us the relationship of living The Honorable Harvest to our quest to live in balance with Mother Earth; how to save ourselves by coming into relationship with Nature. She is Distinguished Teaching Professor and Director, Center for Native Peoples and the Environment at the State University of New York (SUNY), College of Environmental Science and Forestry.
Introduction to Leif Wenar's speech (January 27th) based on his book, Blood Oil: Tyrants, Violence, and the Rules That Run the World. He sees a great opportunity for America, now, to stop buying stolen oil and other natural resources. We can lead the world by putting an end to the bad, old rule 'might makes right' in terms of oil and natural resources. All quite doable and with so many of the countries in the "Arc of Oil" in chaos and increasingly controlled by terrorists now is the time to act on principle, practice what we preach, and stop buying stolen oil. He makes a strong, inspirational argument for changing old, dysfunctional rules and living by our principles when it comes to oil and other natural resources.
