Will the last snow on Earth be red? Join a cell biologist on this exploration of our relationship with energy, from life’s origins to humans’ use of fossil fuels and beyond. We’ll examine the paleo data behind various climate models and look at current climate changes in a geological context.
We’ll experience the science in tandem with the instructor’s personal journey from dawning awareness to eco-anxiety to recovery. Part science, part memoir, part travel adventure, at its core this talk is an argument for an ethics of climate action.
