Book Talk: Our Fragile Moment by Michael Mann at Perry World House

Tue October 24, 12:15 pm to 1:15 pm

A rapidly warming climate is driving natural catastrophes. Drought, fire, sea level rise, heatwaves, flooding, and storms threaten the wellbeing of people all around the world. As the dangers unfold, global warming becomes a lived experience, and it feels too late to act.In his new book, Our Fragile Moment, Michael Mann turns this climate doomism on its head by looking to Earth’s history for inspiration. Humanity’s inception, and some of its greatest innovations, are the result of large-scale environmental change. He writes about how this era of global warming can hold these same opportunities for creative growth – that is, if we act now. How can the climate crisis be leveraged to propel humanity forward? Why must we act now, in this fragile moment? What is stopping us? Join Michael Mann as he answers these critical questions and discusses the premise of his book with Bloomberg Science journalist Faye Flam.
