Heating Up: The Ethics of Climate Change

Location: South Hill 3324 S. Perry St. Spokane, WA 99203

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 funded by Humanities Washington, ethicist Brian G. Henning 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.

This is part of a climate change series at the South Hill Library in Fall 2019.
