    schema:description "Ecological sciences have informed environmental ethics from its inception as a scholarly pursuit in the 1970s so much so that we now have ecological ethics, Deep Ecology, and ecofeminism. Throughout the 20th century, however, most ecologists remained enthralled by the myth that science is value-free. Closer study of science by philosophers reveals that metaphors are inescapable and cognitively indispensable to science, but that metaphors are value-laden. As we confront the enormous challenges of the 21st century the prospect of a 6th mass extinction, acidifying oceans, rising sea level, and global warming ecologists can no longer remain aloof from public discourse about what actions to take to address these problems. And that means that 21st century ecologists understand that right action is guided by ethics. However, integration of ethical ideas into academic curricula and ecologists research agendas is still meager."@en ;
