Global Warming Hyperbole April 2007 Archives

globalwarminghype.com [cached]

Meat eaters, not gas guzzlers, to blame for global warming, speaker claims - Adopting a vegetarian diet is better at preventing global warming than driving a fuel-efficient car, said San Jose State University sociology professor Dan Brook in a lecture Monday.
Speaking as a guest invited by Students for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Brook stressed that the practices of the international meat and dairy industry are the leading cause of greenhouse gases, which consequently result in global warming. He also cited a few sketchy statistics, the Emerald has found. To prevent these greenhouse gases, Brook said that individual consumers can make a huge difference where government and industry have not. "Every time you buy something, you're saying 'I support this process; I vote for it,'" he said.


Sociology for Social Activism - Sociology At Work

www.sociologyatwork.org [cached]

Dr Dan Brook is a lecturer in sociology and politics at San Jose State University in the United States, and he is also involved with several social activism communities outside of his academic work.
This includes support of social causes such as vegetarianism, anti-smoking awareness, global warming, the promotion of peace, and advocating for an increase in living wages. In this Sociology at Work Google+ Hangout I spoke with Dan about how he uses applied sociology in his social activism. At the heart of the various social justice issues that Dan works on, there is a common goal: "A better, fairer, kinder, more beautiful society. A Brief Background on Dr Dan Brook Like many sociological careers, Dan's professional journey includes various social and political interests and activities with a common theme of social justice. Dan did his undergraduate degree in socio-political economy before completing a Masters in Political Science. Dan then did a Masters and PhD in Sociology. After his postgraduate degree, Dan taught English as a second language in a low-income school in New York for one year. He did the same after getting married the following year, this time travelling to live and teach in Bangkok, Thailand. Dan has since been a part-time lecturer at various schools. Being a part-time lecturer means that Dan doesn't always get to choose the subjects he teaches, but he says it's been serendipitous that he has been able to focus on the subjects he loves: sociology and politics. Dan says: Social Truths: e-book by Dr Dan Brook. Via Smashwords. Dan uses says he uses his sociological imagination in order to make connections between his political activism and his sociological practice. Dan's social activism includes a variety of social justice issues, including anti-discrimination, ecological sustainability, and equal distribution of education and welfare. Dan also works to promote vegetarianism. He says: "Animals are a different species, but it's how we earthlings treat each other in this world. Also how it connects to personal health, public health and planetary health. Dan goes on to explain that despite his seemingly diverse interests in social activism, "I try to make all sorts of connections": Dan sees teaching as "another way of organising and doing political work. Dan has a practical approach to sociological teaching. Dan talks to his students about his volunteering and social activism in order to demonstrate the many uses of sociology in the transformation of society. One of his courses offers the option for students to participate in a community project, either through social service, advocacy or social change. Students then write reflection papers at the end of their community work. Dan sees this is a useful way of bringing sociology to society as well as feeding society back into the classroom. Dan recognises that students undertake a degree in order to get a job, but he likes to remind students that a sociological education provides them a set of skills that have wide application. He says sociology teaches us more than "information and facts"; sociology teaches us "how to think. Sociology, politics and culture are inextricably linked - at least in practice, if not always in theory. I don't think we can have one without the others. - Dr Dan Brook Sociology, politics and culture are inextricably linked - at least in practice, if not always in theory. I don't think we can have one without the others. - Dr Dan Brook
