David Wallace-Wells - The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, March 12, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Expanding on his July 2017 New York magazine article—called “the Silent Spring of our time” and the most-read piece in the magazine’s history—Wallace-Wells’s new book is an unsparing look at the realities of climate change and the consequences of our continuing failure to face them. Pointing to the increase in storms of unprecedented magnitude, the now year-round wildfires, and the rising oceans, Wallace-Wells argues that climate change is well under way, and that its impact will be more severe than even our worst-case scenarios indicate. Writing with passion and urgency, Wallace-Wells, a national fellow at the New America foundation and a columnist and deputy editor at New York, goes beyond the science of climate change to show that it’s an existential crisis so severe that it will reshape every aspect of human life.
