Kathleen Dean Moore on the moral urgency of climate change

Nature writer and philosophy professor Kathleen Dean Moore writes, “to imagine [my grandchildren] wandering, hungry, in a barren land changed everything for me. I decided I would never do anything in my working life that doesn’t at least try to make the world safe for bog lilies and hooting owls and laughing children.”

In an interview published in Minding Nature: Spring 2019, Volume 12, Number 2, Moore talks about anthropocene, role of senior citizens in driving climate change movements, addiction to consumer goods, “hope-o-meter” for the future of the Earth and more.

Moore co-edited book, Moral Ground: Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril, gathers testimony from the world’s moral leaders about our obligations to future generations. Other books celebrate cultural and spiritual connections to wet, wild places.
