How Not to Go Extinct - lecture by Dr. Sailesh Rao, PhD
September 17, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Art Building Auditorium, Rm. 132
This is a timely lecture by Dr Sailesh Rao, PhD: Founder and Executive Director of Climate Healers, a non-profit dedicated towards healing the Earth’s climate.
The talk examines the top causes of premature extinction on Earth - climate change, biodiversity loss, ecosystems collapse, chemical pollution and more, and explains how a nonviolent Eco-Vegan lifestyle mitigates all of these causes. It advances the hypothesis that an ecosystems role for human beings as the "Thermostat Species" is in harmony with scientific facts as well as with the foundational stories of major cultures. With strong scientific evidence, it shows why we need to transform to a largely Vegan World to continue fulfilling this ecosystems role as compassionate "Climate Healers" by 2026, seven short years from now, or risk our own extinction.
