Video to counter our McKibben article

This week we discussed Bill McKibben’s article “The Mental Environment.” It adopts a rather negative slant—that humans in modern western society are despairingly self-absorbed.  I came upon a video that proposes a different notion. Jeremy Rifkin asks, “Can we reach biosphere consciousness and global empathy in time to avert planetary collapse?”

The Reading and Media Group meets every Thursday at 7 p.m. in the second floor lounge of Memorial Union.
