Wie hat die industrielle Revolution die Erde verändert? Diese Frage stellt sich Carson Fellow John McNeill und nimmt bei der Beantwortung Bezug auf das Buch „The Destruction of the Bison“ des ehemaligen Carson Fellows Andrew Isenberg. Das Fell des Bisons wurde in der Textilindustrie gebraucht und führte so fast zur Vernichtung des Tierbestands. Die damit zusammenhängende Umweltveränderung soll Anstoß für sein eigenes Buch geben und die Umweltveränderungen durch die Industrie betrachten. Carson Fellow John McNeills Forschungen konzentrieren sich auf die Geschichte des Mittelmeerraums, des tropischen Atlantiks und der pazifischen Inseln.
Inspired by Carson fellow Andrew C. Isenberg and his book The Destruction of the Bison, McNeill follows the track of the global effects of the Industrial Revolution, examining the ecological impact of the industrialization due to “casual demands” that required extracting vast resources from far flung regions in short periods of time, with tremendous environmental consequences. Since 1985, Prof. Dr. McNeill has taught at Georgetown University, where he held the Cinco Hermanos Chair in Environmental and International Affairs before becoming a university professor in 2006.
