Over the years, we have witness unprecedented growth and development that threatens our planet earth as evidenced by environmental degradation, world poverty all of which will be exacerbated by climate change. “Environmental Crisis or Crisis of Epistemology?” explores the ideas that environmental destruction and injustice is integrally related to unsustainable knowledge and the role that knowledge plays in a racially discriminatory and unequal society. It also challenges us to think more critically about certain kinds of growth and development and creating knowledge that is more sustainable, environmentally benign and just and more compatible with the earth’s lifecycle. To continue business as usual without questioning our epistemology could lead to dire and unintended consequences of Herculean proportions. We can and must reverse this perilous trend. We must embarked upon creating knowledge that is more protective of the environment and the inhabitants of the earth.
