Special Issue: Ecology and Ideology
The contemporary moment abounds with speculation concerning our ecological
future. Specialists in a variety of fields forecast immanent catastrophe,
stemming from a combination of climate change, fossil-fuel depletion, and
consumer waste. The recent bestowal of the Nobel Peace Prize on a group of
scientists studying climate change indicates the degree to which â€œpeaceâ€
has come to signify ecological balance; even the declaration by the Vatican
of a new set of â€œ7 Deadly Sins for the modern ageâ€ includes pollution in an
attempt to grapple with the potential of individuals to inflict ecological
damage on a global scale.
