Frances Moore Lappe: Rethinking Environmental Challenges
Frances Moore Lappe, known for her phenomenally best-selling Diet for a Small Planet, argues that the biggest challenge to human survival isn't our fossil-fuel dependency or melting glaciers--it's faulty thinking. From global hunger to the environmental crisis, says Lappé, author of Ecomind, we have the resources to make a difference, but "thought traps" rob us of power and keep us from action. Lappé dismantles seven of these "thought traps"--from limiting growth to the failings of democracyand offers contrasting "thought leaps" that reveal our hidden power. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola.
