Losing Earth: Nathaniel Rich in Conversation

April 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

By 1979, we knew all that we know now about the science of climate change: what was happening, why it was happening, and how to stop it. Nathaniel Rich’s book Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change is the groundbreaking account of our failure to act. Now, as the world grapples with the devastating realities of rising temperatures and shrinking ice caps, Rich offers a clear-eyed assessment of how we got to now, and what we can and must do before it’s truly too late. Ben Rhodes, author of The New York Times bestseller, The World as It Is, co-host of Pod Save the World and former adviser to President Obama, joins Rich for a conversation.
