Description Karr will discuss humanity's effects on salmon and rivers. He will identify the core problem: flawed indicators and models endorse values that promote unsustainable lifestyles. He will argue that we need improved indicators, so that we can create better assessments and more inclusive policy processes. He will present the case for alternative models to help us understand relationships among economy, society, environment, and national security.
