Abstract:

The world is undergoing subtle yet massive ecological change caused by  
human activities. Decades of large-scale human activities have  
unwittingly created environmental experiments, which have significant  
impact to our physical, social, and political experience.

This lecture by one of our distinguished alumni traces the cascading  
and uncontrolled activities of society and how people managed to  
change in time to avoid or mitigate calamities. It also shows how the  
present environmental problems is challenging this generation to  
confront the behavioral, technological and political changes needed to  
avert a catastrophe that is greater than past environmental problems.  
It finally closes with practical yet significant activities that any  
person can do to contribute to this effort.
