Stefan and David discuss the ideas of deep ecology and the ethical implications that accepting such a philosophy would have on the world. From this jump off point, we cover the possibility of a secular environmental viewpoint, and whether all such concerns must be anthropocentric in nature. As promised in the podcast, here is the link to the New Yorker article on Plant Intelligence and more information on the Union Carbide disaster in Bhopal can be found here.
