Talk: How to save the ocean

How can we sustainably use our Ocean? Dorothy J. Dankel argues along the lines of E.O. Wilson's book Consilience (1998) that ever since the French Revolution we have systematically undermined our ability to conduct integrated assessments to the detriment of our natural environment. Dankel draws on her experiences in European fisheries, and illuminates the term "post-normal science" as the paradigm in which fisheries management must work, and finally, how integrated assessments are the most logical, and easiest, tool to save the ocean.
