This book approaches the study of the environment from two academic disciplines: both sociologists and philosophers have concerns about our environmenta€™s ability not only to sustain itself but to thrive. The book examines the differences between a€œsustainabilitya€ and a€œthrivability.a€ Such topics as the sixth mass extinction (now underway), fracking, plastics, food waste and deforestation are explored. The book also considers the skepticism about humansa€™ being the cause of a deteriorating environment and details naturea€™s adverse role in harming the environment. Finally, the text gives reasons why choosing a thrivability approach is not only (obviously) beneficial but quite possible, and discusses practical ways in which thrivability can be taught.a€œFormer WVU Tech Chief Talks Climate Change. ...
