In anticipation of author and activist Andri Snaer Magnason’s lecture and discussion to introduce his new book, On Time and Water, hosted by UNE North on Wednesday, April 14 at 4:30pm, UNE Library Services has ordered Magnason’s book!
“You wouldn’t describe Andri Snær Magnason as a climate radical – as a former Icelandic presidential candidate, he’s much more pragmatic. His main concern is that the barrage of environmental news is starting to fall on deaf ears, leaving many climate scientists exasperated by a reception of inactivity. So, how do we move people to action?
“Magnason explores a disconnect unique to our present generation, when nature no longer exists as an immutable force of its own governance. His solution is to adopt a more romantic reverence for nature’s beauty and power. Decisions on environmental protection should not be based on economic imperatives, but instead on our elemental affinities with the natural world.”Jacob Dykes, Geographical
