Project Proposal

Notes for my presentation of Bruckner’s “The Fanaticism of the Apocalypse”:

Quotes and Discussion Questions:

To begin, do you think that environmentalism is constantly preaching catastrophe, and if so, is this worth criticizing?

Do you believe that climate change activism is more about the planet or about ourselves, and if it is the latter, in what way is it about ourselves?

Do you find that climate change alarmism and natural disaster coverage actually hinders any realistic approaches to combatting climate change? Are we desensitized by being exposed to this alarmism on a regular basis? ,

Bruckner draws many parallels between environmentalism and Christianity, do you think that was an accurate comparison? Does environmentalism treat humankind as “fallen”?

What is your thoughts on Latour’s suggestion that we make a Senate that includes nature among its representatives, and how would that even work? (page 84)

Do you believe that combatting climate change requires us to embrace a simpler, ascetic lifestyle. If so, do you believe it will be enough to change anything at this point?

In terms of the environment, do we owe future generations anything?

As Bruckner alludes to, is it possible that it is a contradiction to preach catastrophe and concern for the future of humanity at the same time?

Branch Rickey Arena Rain Garden

Janelle Valdinger, Dr. John Krygier, Perry Mickley, Brad Stanton, Caroline Cicerchi, Chad Green, Stacy Davenport, and OWU Building  & Grounds

Summary:  This project focused on the installation of a rain garden on the north side of Branch Rickey Arena.

Methods & Results:  City of Delaware Capital Improvement Funding has been allocated for this project, the size and design of the rain garden has been developed and approved, the appropriate plants have been chosen (natives), the location has been decided upon, area calculations have been completed to determine the minimum size of the rain garden, a CAD drawing has been finished by the Engineering department, and the appropriate Storm-water Agreement and Right of Entry paperwork has been edited, and will be signed by OWU.

Recommendations:  A three year, four phase plan has been developed to install the original rain garden along with three others.
