Loyola University-Chicago’s new environmental science e-textbook and multimedia project is called “Healing Earth”. The project goes beyond science to add the perspectives of ethics, spirituality, and action. We’ll talk with three people behind the project: Nancy Tuchman; Michael Schuck and Father Michael Garanzini Loyola University Chicago. Last week, a group of protesters broke into the Moldovan Parliament, demanding the country hold new elections. We’ll look at what’s behind the growing unrest with Matthew Rojansky of the Wilson Center.
Our relatively “clean” drinking water in the U.S. leads many to believe that the best place to clean our water may be at the local treatment plant. But EcoMyths Alliance says that may not be the case and that this year has seen “a sea change in how we understand and begin to better address nutrient pollution in the Great Lakes.” Kate Sackman from EcoMyths Alliance will talk about what she calls the “war on nutrient pollution” with Joel Brammeier of Alliance for the Great Lakes and Paul Botts of The Wetlands Initiative.
