Authored by Dan Egan, a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writer who has spent years covering Great Lakes science and policy issues for the paper, this book is a page turner that reads like a mystery novel. He draws on the work of some familiar UW professors. For us, as Christians, the book has resonance as we know we were given a mandate in Genesis 1&2 to 'tend & keep' the earth. Come hear three of our own give brief reflections on the book:
Rick Lindroth - Prof of Entomology (CALS)
Tim Van Deelen - Prof of Forest & Wildlife Ecology (CALS)
Jeff Hardin - Prof of Integrative Biology (L&S)
