ETHICAL ACTION FOR A PLANET IN PERIL

Kathleen Dean Moore, author
Saturday, November 9, 2013, 2-4 pm

“Although climate change is an economic and scientific issue, it is fundamentally a moral issue, and it calls for a moral response.”

This is the thesis explored in Moral Ground: Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril, a book that explains, in plain and poignant language, the many reasons why we have a moral obligation to the future to leave a world as rich in possibilities as our own. It is a call to ethical action, in the words of moral leaders all around the world.

Kathleen Dean Moore, co-author of Moral Ground, will lead an interactive presentation incorporating art and small-group conversations that explores answers to values-based questions related to climate change. Moore is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Oregon State University, where she teaches environmental ethics and philosophy of nature, and the author of the essay collections Riverwalking, Holdfast, The Pine Island Paradox and Wild Mercy.
