For our show on Monday January 31st, 2022, host Brent Ragsdale interviews two founding members of the Planetary Limits Academic Network (PLAN) – Dr. Melody LeHew, Professor in the Department of Interior Design and Fashion Studies at Kansas State University and Dr. Tom Murphy, Professor of Physics at the University of California San Diego.
The Planetary Limits Academic Network (PLAN) aims to raise awareness about critical challenges facing the human endeavor in this century by building a network of scholars across the disciplines to collectively address systemic challenges. In this way, PLAN hopes to foster a radically interdisciplinary approach to creating viable responses to a world beyond material growth that may truly achieve long-term harmonious existence with the priceless ecosystems of Earth.
You can hear discussion of foundational principles that we humans are a part of nature, not apart from nature; that the assimilative capacity of the natural systems of Earth is finite; that human activities are not exempt from the physical laws of the universe and that resource usage today impacts our future quality of life.
We at EcoRadio KC are glad to encourage awareness and protection of our world. Our goal is to assure our listeners are aware of how we can create a sustainable present for a sustainable future!
This will be a great radio hour! We hope you can tune in!
