Eminent scientists gathered at The Third International Conference on Science and God (ICSG 3) and The Twenty-Eighth International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences (ICUS 28) (convened online, back-to-back, from April 10-13, 2022) to present and discuss solutions to the most pressing environmental issues from the perspectives of post-materialist “New Paradigm” science and empirical science, respectively. The scientists presented the culmination of their works in research and industry, while engaging in interdisciplinary dialogue to reach a deeper and broader understanding regarding potential solutions to environmental issues.
For your insight and inspiration, The Earth & I offers four articles based on these scientists’ exceptional work.
Lisa Miller, PhD, Professor of Clinical Psychology at Columbia University, spoke at ICSG 3 and emphasized the need for a post-materialist approach to environmental problems, acknowledging human beings’ innate spiritual awareness of the natural world. See: Spiritual Awareness: A Roadmap for Science.
David Blekhman, PhD, Professor of Technology at California State University Los Angeles, spoke at ICUS 28 and explained the tremendous potential of a new hydrogen economy. See: “Net Zero” Strategy: Tapping Hydrogen for Sustainable Electric Power and Transportation.
Bruce Johnson, PhD, Professor of Environmental Learning at the University of Arizona, spoke at ICUS 28 and outlined the need for a new, systemic, and consistent approach to environmental education. See: Higher Still, an Environmental Awakening at the Grassroots Level.
Michael Shaver, PhD, Professor of Polymer Science at The University of Manchester, UK, spoke at ICUS 28 and introduced a project to bring stakeholders of the plastics supply chain (including waste management) together to formulate ideas for a sustainable system with plastics. See: “One Bin”: Incentivizing Sustainable Plastic Systems.
The complete text of these scientists’ presentations will be published in the conferences’ proceedings in the future.
