|| Members’ night|
||Discussion of “Nature, Philosophy and the Environment”|
Talk:This evening will be a members’ night for discussion of our
year’s theme. There will be introductory material from three members
and then discussion around the table with comments and reflections on
the year so far from anyone who wishes to contribute. The introductory
discussions will be as follows.
Laszlo Jamnicky’s presentation
will consist of showing the map for the South West Calgary Ring Road
Project as it affects the Weaselhead (West Glenmore Park) and the
West End of Fish Creek Park, followed by a set of questions around how
much environmental protection do we want to have? How much are we
willing to “pay” for such environmental protection? I plan to use
the Weaselhead as an example to ask these questions but then also ask
them in a more general sense.
A video, “How Wolves Change Rivers” about the re-introduction of wolves into Yellowhead, with discussion by Sel Healy.
Dawson will talk about scientific findings concerning human-caused
global warming and our impact on the environment as the New Galileo and
will discuss what scientific evidence says about traditional
postulations of our relationship to the physical world.
