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!

Brian Tokar on Climate Justice

Brian Tokar – Climate Justice (lecture)

Earth Days come and go. Wonderful speeches are made. Corporations, the biggest polluters, take out ads assuring the public they are green and are dedicated to preserving the environment. And then it’s plunder and exploit business as usual. Planet Earth, the ship we are all passengers on is gradually going down. Moving deck chairs around is no solution. Given the urgency of the situation and the level of threat to humankind the lack of an urgent response is astonishing. The climate crisis is a justice issue, not an esoteric debate among scientists. Will the super rich survive inside a bubble-enclosed, fortified, gated community while the rest of humanity faces the consequences of climate change?

Genetic diversity is nature's path to survival. But over the course of agricultural history human beings have done an exceptional job at narrowing the genetic diversity of the crops we grow and eat. This limiting of the genetic pool ultimately results in crop failures and famine when disease or pestilence strikes. For the past century several scientists have worked tirelessly to rebuild a repository of seed varieties from around the world that can be used as breeding stock to breed new varieties of crops, such as wheat, that are resistant to whatever the current pestilence may be.
