The American Monument: The Slow Motion Catastrophe of the Nuclear
Dr. Peter C. van Wyck explores the intersections of philosophy, cultural theory, and environmental ethics. In his talk, Dr. van Wyck discusses the proposed construction by the U.S. Department of Energy of a warning monument/marker above the underground nuclear waste repository near Carlsbad, New Mexico. What are the implications of such a marker and what challenges does it present to thinking about risks, nature, and the future?
