Can Lessons from Earth’s Past Help Us Survive Our Current Climate Crisis? A Talk with Renowned Scientist Michael Mann

Thu March 28, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

 

In his latest book, Our Fragile Moment, award-winning climate scientist Michael E. Mann explores innovative approaches to combating climate change by examining Earth’s climate history and how the planet has coped with - and survived - extreme events in the past. Climate variability has at times created new opportunities for innovation. Mann argues that the greatest threat to meaningful action today is not denialism but despair among those who feel it is too late to do anything about rising temperatures and seas resulting from fossil fuel consumption. While the window is narrowing, he believes there is still time to take significant political, societal and technological steps to avert catastrophic global climate change.
