home Global Food for Thought (CGIS Lunchtime Lecture Series) 'From Microwave Popcorn to Brad Pitt's Carbon Offset Trees in Bhutan: Spatial Scale and Environmental Politics'

We often understand environmental issues at particular spatial scales -- local, national, global, etc. What about other spatial scales -- such as the body -- and to what extent is it helpful to think of environmental issues as connected or as distinct? In this talk, Dr. O'Lear will discuss how different power interests shape our spatial understanding of certain environmental issues, and she will examine a few examples of familiar (and less familiar) environmental issues to consider why it is helpful to challenge common understanding of these issues. This talk draws from Dr. OLears book titled, "Environmental Politics: Scale and Power". Light refreshments will be served. Approved for GAP Credit.
