Sustainability and Computing Seminar

Nov 20, 2012
1:30 PM
Gates Hillman Center 6115


Patricia M. DeMarco, director of the Rachel Carson Institute in the School of Sustainability and the Environment at Chatham University, will discuss "Silent Spring at 50: An Environmental Ethic for the 21st Century." Rachel Carson's book "Silent Spring" helped to shape the modern environmental movement. Reflecting on this initiative after 50 years provides insight into the changes we face today as we transition from a fossil based economy to one that can be sustained. DeMarco will discuss the forces that shape change, and present some guidelines for moving forward based on Rachel Carson's environmental ethic. She will explore the role of science and technology in shaping the future.
