"Great Tide Rising": Toward Clarity and Moral Courage in a Time of Planetary Change"


UA Environment and Natural Resources 2 (ENR2)
1064 E. Lowell Street Tucson, AZ 85719
United States

An evening with environmental advocate, philosopher, and award-winning author Kathleen Dean Moore, Ph.D

Climate change may be an economic and technological problem. But fundamentally, it is a moral problem, and it calls for a moral response. In this talk, Dr. Moore, author of Great Tide Rising: Toward Clarity and Moral Courage in a Time of Planetary Change, and co-editor of Moral Ground: Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril, takes on the essential questions:

Why is it wrong to wreck the world? What is our obligation to the future? What is the transformative power of moral resolve? How can clear thinking stand against the lies and illogic that batter the chances for positive change? And always this: What stories and ideas will lift people who deeply care, inspiring them to move forward with clarity and moral courage?

Panel discussion to follow, featuring Alison Hawthorne Deming and Tracey Osborne.
