ClimateTalks: Environment is Consequence

Moving from negative externalities to mutual empowerment
Jan. 20, 2011

For the 2011 Freedom School Sessions, I have the privilege of hosting a seminar discussion on the themes and concepts from my essay “Environment is Consequence”. The argument is not that we are free of responsibility for environmental impacts, but rather that everything we do helps to shape and determine what will occur in the wider environment. We are the environment, and the environment lives within us as much as it does outside our bodies and our minds.
