Heating Up: The Ethics of Climate Change

Thursday, January 21, @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Jan. 21, 6 p.m.

What if we could tell ourselves a new story about climate change—and, in doing, so, alter our relationship to our planet?

With larger, longer wildfire seasons, accelerating species extinction, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise, it’s increasingly clear that climate change isn’t something that’s about to happen — it’s here. But while the laundry list of problems wrought by climate change is well-known, few talk about how our moral beliefs about nature have led us to the brink.

In this presentation, ethicist Brian G. Henning, a professor at Gonzaga University, discusses how global warming itself is not the only problem—it’s a symptom of a larger issue concerning how we conceive of ourselves and our relationship to the natural world.

Sponsored by the Everett Public Library and Humanities Washington.
