The Moral Urgency of Climate Action
In a flood of extinctions and on-rushing global warming, what can one person do to change the course of the river? Why should anyone try? In a talk that is equal parts anger and love, Writer/philosopher Kathleen Dean Moore speaks about the nature of change and calls us to radical truth-telling and courageous citizenship.
Kathleen Dean Moore* is a moral philosopher, nature author and environmental advocate. She is the author of Wild Comfort, Riverwalking, and her climate change anthology: Moral Ground: Ethical Actions for a Planet in Peril. She has recently retired from her position as professor at Oregon State University to devote all her working hours to efforts to slow climate change and “shift the course of the river.”
