The Climate Crisis: Are We There Yet?
Conservation Biologist, Author, and Professor Emeritus,
University of Arizona
Early in his presentation, Dr. McPherson states, “I’m concerned that ‘sustainability’ has come to mean sustaining Western civilization,” and adds, “This is sustaining the unsustainable.” The author of 10 books, including “Going Dark,” calls industrial civilization “an addiction we can’t seem to kick.” Dr. McPherson lives his convictions, as well – he left his tenured teaching position at the University of Arizona for ethical reasons and lives “off the grid” in a staw-bale house on a small homestead in rural New Mexico.
