The Greener Side

Every Friday from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Tune in every Thursday for The Greener Side where we explore current environmental events. By presenting varying perspectives on issues, we hope to broaden the scope of listeners’ awareness of the scientific basis and significance of these issues.

Why is environmentalism today so human-centric?

Why isn’t environmental justice emphasized more?

How do we break the wall  of apathy surrounding environmental issues?

How do we close the behavior gap between how people feel about the environment and how they behave?

Today on The Greener Side, we are joined by UT's own Nicole Smith, a professor in the Philosophy Department, to chat about environmental ethics. By looking backwards at the history of environmentalism and man's relationship with "the natural world" (are we not apart of it?!), analyzing the past and present shortcomings of environmental activism, and amplifying a philosophical approach to traversing these issues, we hope to offer a fresh look at the pressing problems surrounding climate justice, food politics, and more issues plaguing "humankind".

Today in the booth we have Daniella Rempe, Hydrologist, Geomorphologist, Professor in the Jackson School, and Research Lead  to discuss her fascinating research about subsurface fluids and how her "long-term research goal promotes the sustainability of water resources by contributing to a mechanistic understanding of groundwater and vadose-zone processes, particularly in mountainous regions".

Welcome back to another semester of The Greener Side where we will be exploring what sustainability means to us, and what it means to others of all sorts of groups of individuals. How we define sustainability will be essential to our communication of it, so by exploring not only our own experiences with environmentalism, we may work more effectively to break through the indifference and apathy heavily prevalent in today's society regarding the state of our environment.
