Lecture from UC Berkeley on Climate Change with some of my favorites

Take a listen to these lectures on climate change from a UC Berkeley meeting on the environment (2009).  Some of the speakers are among my favorites-- including the ecofeminist historian Carolyn Merchant (author of numerous books on environmentalism, such as The Death of Nature and Reinventing Eden), and Professor Timothy Morton from UC Davis (author of Ecology Without Nature and Ecological Thought).  Morton speaks eloquently on the grief and abstraction associated with environmental degradation and global warming, and Merchant  explains her important concept of a "partnership ethic" for sustainability.
