I do not think that there are environmental concerns specific to my field.They are in common with all fields in biological, chemical and biomedical sciences, but here is clearly (…)
Although the Anthropocene and climate change are widely known as scientific issues, they are also significant cultural problems. In literary criticism and ecocriticism, the main (…)
Expert in biodiversity, changing towards a sustainable way of life since 30 years, convinced that sustainable living brings happiness and happy to share experiences.
My main concerns about climate change in my researches are the melt of the Greenland ice sheet and the associate sea-level rise. I reduce my carbon footprint in many ways.

Everything has to change: behaviors, spiritual life, political engagement… From a systemic point of view too, we have to move towards a real ecological transition.
