The Age of Us

Mike Urban Mike Urban, Associate Professor and Chair of Geography, University of Missouri

From climate change to oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico, news stories are constantly filled with reports of environmental problems. Increasingly, people are seen as important factors in the health and stability of the planet. I’d like to explore some important questions about our changing environment and the human role in these transformations such as: to what extent are people to blame for some of these issues, should we worry, and what can we all do about it?
