Event description

Description

In 2017, David Wallace-Wells wrote an article titled "The Uninhabitable Earth," explaining the horrifying future that awaits us due to climate change. It was the most widely read story in New York Magazine's history, and it led to a wave of commentary.

Wallace-Wells has now has now expanded the article into a book of the same name, where he explains why it’s now too late to avoid a 21st century that is completely transformed by the forces of climate change. He presents harrowing scenarios: widespread ecosystems collapse, severe impacts on public health, agriculture, geopolitics, and an earth that is inhospitable to human civilization.

And yet, amidst its terrifying predictions, the book serves as an impassioned call to action, one that is designed to shake us out of our complacency and move us towards climate action.

Come hear David Wallace-Wells discuss The Uninhabitable Earth with Kai Nagata, environmental activist, conservationist, and communications director of Dogwood Initiative.
