@ Busboys and Poets 14th & V: Peter Brannen - The Ends of the World: Volcanic Apocalypses, Lethal Oceans, and Our Quest to Understand Earth's Past Mass Extinctions

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at 6:30 pm

As the world enters the Anthropocene, there’s a lot of talk about the sixth extinction. But what about the previous five? Brannen, an award-winning science journalist and former journalism fellow at Woods Hole, broadens our views of both climate and climate change with this vivid tour of the pivotal events of the Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian, and other eras. Using fossils and myriad geological records, he shows us the globe as we’ve never seen it before, tracing the scars of asteroids, glaciers, fire, and other literally Earth-shaking calamities. By piecing together what happened in deep time, Brannen shows us what to expect in the near future.

Brannen will be in conversation with Ed Yong, author of I Contain Multitudes.
