The Watchman's Rattle

Event detail
 

Why does it feel as if our most challenging problems today—worldwide recession, global warming, fast-spreading viruses, water and food shortages, poverty—aren’t getting solved?  What if our brain has limits that prevent it from solving such complex problems?  If ancient civilizations collapsed because they, too, hit a cognitive limitation, are we headed to a similar collapse? Can it be prevented?

These are the questions Rebecca Costa dares to confront—and offer a solution to—in her intriguing and game-changing book, The Watchman’s Rattle.  The author will speak about these issues with Gil Friend, speaker on strategic sustainability and environmental innovation and President and CEO of Natural Logic Inc.  Book signing to follow.

This Earth Day program is sponsored by the Stegner Environmental Center.  A Green Stacks program.
