The missing premise of the argument and much-needed center piece in the debate to date has been the need for ethical values, moral guidance, and principled reasons for doing the right thing for our planet, its animals, its plants, and its people.
Contributors from throughout the world (including North America, Africa, Australia, Asia, and Europe) bring forth a rich variety of heritages and perspectives. Their contributions take many forms, illustrating the rich variety of ways we express our moral beliefs in letters, poems, economic analyses, proclamations, essays, and stories. In the end, their voices affirm why we must move beyond a scientific study and response to embrace an ongoing model of repair and sustainability. These writings demonstrate that scientific analysis and moral conviction can work successfully side-by-side.
This is an audiobook that can speak to anyone, regardless of his or her worldview, and that also includes a section devoted to what next thinking that helps the listener put the words and ideas into action in their personal lives. Thanks to generous support from numerous landmark organizations, such as the Kendeda Fund and Germeshausen Foundation, the audiobook is just the starting point for a national, and international, discussion that will be carried out in a variety of ways, from online debate to town hall meetings, from essay competitions for youth to sermons from pulpits in all denominations. The Moral Ground movement will result in a newly discovered, or rediscovered, commitment on a personal and community level to consensus about our ethical obligation to the future.
