Craig Dilworth on Tour
Monday, January 13 at 7:00 pm

CRAIG DILWORTH in person

Author of the profound 2010 book:

TOO SMART FOR OUR OWN GOOD

The Ecological Predicament of Humankind


Our ecologically disruptive behavior – which is the same as our explosive technological know-how — is rooted in the nature of Homo Sapiens. Humankind’s development consists of an accelerating movement from situations of scarcity, to technological innovation, to increased resource availability, to increased consumption, to population growth, to resource depletion once again — in a vicious circle from the dawn of humanity and continuing today. Craig Dilworth amasses enormous evidence to prove that technology is our undoing: his Vicious Circle Principle trumps our intelligence.
