The title was "It's Wrong to Wreck the World: Climate Change and the Moral Obligation to the Future".
Kathleen spends every summer on a remote island off the coast of Alaska. She's in touch with Nature there, and at home in Oregon. In this artful, moving speech, we get some readings from her work - examples of why her books are so popular.
Find out more about Kathleen Dean Moore at her blog at riverwalking.com
Her latest book, a collection of 1500 short essays about our obligation to the future, is called "Moral Ground: Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril." The writers are among the most famous people in the world, all speaking for the rights of the next generation(s).
"Morality" sounds boring. This speech surprised and moved me. It will do the same for you.
