Coming to MTSU, Fall 2012

Mondays & Wednesdays, 2:20 – 3:45
James Union Building, Room 202
The focus this semester is on environmental activism: can there be an effective and responsible Green Movement, given the political climate, the media machinery of partisan disinformation, and the strong current of denialism being encouraged and subsidized by private interests and ideologically biased individuals and groups?
 The long-term health of the planet, and our status as the thinking/planning/deciding & plundering part of nature, is the practical point of so many fundamental philosophical questions. As Carl Sagan said, there's no sign of help coming to save us from ourselves. The vital question thus becomes: can we save ourselves?
Every day, for we who now inhabit the earth and for our successors, is  Earth Day.
