USSEE President Valerie Luzadis on the Earth Economy

What does the Earth ask of us? USSEE President Valerie Luzadis writes that the Earth “asks us to know ourselves and to act as citizens of Earth rather than as consumers in an economy that does not fully recognize Earth or its nonhuman components”. The article is entitled “An Earth Economy: Citizenship before Consumerism,” and it appears on the website of the Center for Humans and Nature, as part of their Questions for a Resilient Future project. Dr. Luzadis is Professor of Environmental Studies at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, New York.
