McGill Research Group on the Ecology of Collapse. Facing Environmental Catastrophe: Causes, Consequences and Alternatives


Madhav Badami, Peter Brown, Mark Goldberg, Richard Janda, Greg Mikkelson, Tom Naylor

Our transdisciplinary research group seeks to use the substantial knowledge that already exists about causes of the current human dilemma to create an integrated understanding of the interrelations of various factors, particularly the larger variables of population, per capita affluence and technological choice, with a view to evolving more coherent and effective strategies to slow down the course of environmental degradation that is very likely to lead to collapse on a grand scale of both societies and their surrounding ecosystems.
