Wild Law: A New Paradigm for Earth's Survival
Human populations overshot the Earth's capacity to support them a while ago. Rates of consumption continue to increase while the ruling societies on Earth give us Fukushima and the BP gulf oil spill, treating the Earth as a treasure chest for private exploitation. They turn a blind eye to the devastation to all life on Earth and to our ever shrinking future.
Are we acquiescing to our own extinction?
Many say we urgently need a new worldview. Guest Cormac Cullinan is a leading voice in the movement to forward an Earth-centered worldview. Author of the just released second edition; Wild Law, he will talk about the false premises underlying the mechanistic world view and the paradigm shift we need NOW!
