The Uninhabitable Earth – Climate Change is Here, in California

Friday, March 6, 7:00pm







DWW_headshot 1

 Journalist David Wallace-Wells is a  National Fellow at New America and Deputy Editor at New York Magazine.  His acclaimed New York Times bestseller book The Uninhabitable Earth tells the scientific story of environmental damage to date. “It will always be the case that the next decade could contain more warming and more suffering or less warming and less suffering.”   He explains how the future is being transformed by climate change faster and more dramatically than we realized. He asks key questions: how will the map of global power shift as coast lines are redrawn? How will this affect California - our culture, our politics, our lifestyle?  What is our individual responsibility?  Can we have an impact?  Wallace-Wells reminds us that everything is within our control, so long as we resist complacency.
