David Wallace-Wells | The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming
Tue, May 5, 2020 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library
Please note: This event has been rescheduled from March 24, 2020.
In conversation with Dr. Rachel Valletta, Environmental Scientist at The Franklin Institute and director of all climate change education and outreach programming.
A columnist and deputy editor at New York magazine, David Wallace-Wells has written extensively about the environment and the future of science, including a widely read—and hotly debated—2017 article about worst-case climate change scenarios. He formerly was a National Fellow at the New America Foundation and the deputy editor of the Paris Review. In his number-one New York Times bestseller The Uninhabitable Earth, Wallace-Wells issues a fervent call-to-arms to a world closer to the brink of climate-change Armageddon than many would care to admit. “This generation’s Silent Spring,” (Washington Post), it is a travelogue of the crisis as it unfolds in real time and a rumination upon how it will affect the next generation.
