Event description
David Wallace-Wells, Deputy Editor, New York Magazine; Author, The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming 
Greg Dalton, Founder and Host, Climate OneAccording to David Wallace-Wells, we’re cooked—literally. In his recent book, The Uninhabitable Earth, Wallace-Wells explores how climate change will impact not just the planet, but human lives—including how a five degree Celsius increase in temperatures would make parts of the planet unsurvivable.But is panic and doom and gloom really the best way to galvanize a response to climate change? Wallace-Wells asserts that in the U.S. complacency is a much bigger political problem than fatalism. If science and news headlines won’t propel us into action, perhaps fear will?Join us for a conversation with Wallace-Wells, deputy editor at New York Magazine and the author of The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming, for a conversation on how climate change will shape our politics, culture and emotional lives.
