Climate Week NYC: A Talk with Bill McKibben
Bill McKibben's groundbreaking 1989 classic, The End of Nature, first brought the idea of global warming to public consciousness. But now the stakes are even higher-as climate change shrinks the spaces where civilization can exist, and technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics threaten the nature of human experience. McKibben has responded with Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?, a powerful and sobering look at these converging trends, the ideological passions that prevent us from controlling them, and some possible ways out of the trap. Audience Q&A and book signing to follow.
"An essential book-honest, far-reaching and, against the odds, hopeful."
