Elizabeth Kolbert will give a virtual talk on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day for a sober, and sobering, look at the state of the planet.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Prophet of Love, Field Notes from a Catastrophe, and The Sixth Extinction, Elizabeth Kolbert is one of the most terrifying writers in American today because she’s not writing about imagined horrors but real ones: climate change, environmental destruction, and the ongoing loss of biodiversity as humankind spreads over every inch of this planet.

Kolbert has traveled from Alaska to Greenland, visiting top scientists to get to the heart of the debate over global warming. Join us online to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. While the COVID-19 crisis is unfolding on the world stage, what Elizabeth Kolbert has to say about our changing climate is just as pressing as it ever was.
