Sandra Steingraber Talks About Shale Ecosystems

Sandra's poetry and science combine brilliantly in this beautiful short talk in a Binghamton music club on November 17: the relationship of deep ecosystems to our wellbeing on the sunlit surface of the planet.

Bringing a human rights approach to the environmental crisis, Dr. Steingraber urges governments to adopt policies that safeguard the healthy development of children and the abiding ecological systems on which their lives depend. Dr. Steingraber has deployed her rare combination of abilities as a lyrical writer, disciplined scientist and passionate advocate to the pursuit of a healthier world for us all, saying, "What we love we must protect."
What we love, we must protect!
