By Sigmund Kvaløy Setreng

Setreng points out that the socio-ecological crisis of our time is something completely unprecedented and has become global. He elaborates the need for the development of a new paradigm. Setreng contrasts the term “ecophilosophy” with “deep ecology.” This article from 1988 provides a vivid account of the direct action to protect the Mardøla and Alta rivers from being dammed.
