IDEAS Presents 'Caught in the Same Net: The Ocean and Us'
Caught in the Same Net: The Ocean and Us
Fisheries, coral reefs, forests, climate change, poverty, literacy for girls, and peace -- these are all facets of the same issue. Drawing on two acclaimed books published in the last few months -- The View From Lazy Point and A Sea In Flames -- scientist/author Dr. Carl Safina weaves a story that is both deeply personal and broadly global. Sharing travels that take us from his Long Island beach house to the high Arctic, Antarctica, and across the coastal tropics, he shows how the changes he has witnessed challenge not just nature but all of humankind. Safina will also discuss how science has ethical implications, how religion and science are converging toward common cause on environmental matters, and how moral responses can add momentum toward increasingly crucial solutions. Despite serious trends, there is a path forward.
Books, signed by the author, will be available for purchase.
