As the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference approaches, the world awaits the assessment of our progress in dealing with climate change. Will we meet our goal of preventing global temperatures from rising beyond 2 degrees Celsius?
The response to this question, and the discussion around climate change, has been met with pessimism, but best-selling author and world-renowned scientist and environmentalist Tim Flannery argues that there is room for optimism.
In his new book, “Atmosphere of Hope: Searching for Solutions to the Climate Crisis,” Flannery examines the situation confronting our planet and offers his thoughts on how to ensure an ecologically viable future.
Join us as Flannery shares his views and discusses “Atmosphere of Hope: Searching for Solutions.” A book signing will follow this event.
Part of the monthly Anthropocene: Life in the Age of Humans series hosted by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.
