Environmental Roundtable: TBA: AGW, AWE, GJH, PAC, PAT, USA, then HOPE

Date: Thursday, November 10, 2016

Time: 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm

Contact: Kimberly Kahn · kjkahn@loyno.edu · 504-865-2599

Location: Monroe Hall 152

Environmental Roundtables are facilitated discussions of important environmental issues, hosted by the Loyola University Environment Program. Facilitators include Environment Program Faculty and guest hosts.

Dr. David White, from the Biology Department and the Environment Program, will facilitate a discussion entitled 

"TBA: AGW, AWE, GJH, PAC, PAT, USA, then HOPE"

Science "knowings" will begin this provocative hour. "Evidence based learnings" of Science are what created the concern for our "Environment".  This "movement" has grown immensely in recent decades.  Dr. White feels strongly that the fact-based power of supportive "Science" is forgotten by many.  Learnings of his during the decades at Loyola gained through teaching, student/colleague interaction, research, travels, and Louisiana life, have made him wiser about the challenges ahead.  Some of these learnings will be brought up for discussion in the short hour of his reflections at this event.  Dr. White's awareness of the environmental passion in students gives him encouragement that generations to come will continue to push world change for the better - though it will be a distant better future, he is afraid.  This all is a wise "liberal" view gained from the idea of what "higher" education should be about - though, all too often feared and suppressed. The explorative human mind is indeed generational progress.  Come, join the sponsoring Environment Program folks, and explore with gratitude for the opportunity.  As Dr. White likes to say - "the mind is a terrible thing to waste".  There will be some time for open discussion - but never, never enough!
