Event Details

Journalist and author David Wallace-Wells will be joining us to talk about his book, The Uninhabitable Earth.

Building on his viral article published in New York magazine in 2017, and bringing together previously unreported scientific work, The Uninhabitable Earth is a terrifying analysis of the climate crisis we are currently living through, and a map of the unavoidable genocide and devastation it will lead to: forest fires dissolving the landscape; India, Bangladesh and the UK submerged by the ocean; more plastic than fish in the sea - and, ultimately, human extinction.

Rather than living on the precipice of a near-future catastrophe, Wallace-Wells presents evidence that the catastrophe is already upon us - and all we can hope to do is slow it down. Is the crisis really the fault of the most wealthy 10%? How much of an effect do climate deniers have? Why are scientists calling the hundred years after 2100 the “century of hell”? Is climate change happening faster than we realise, and do we still have time to fight it? Do recent shifts in our politics give cause for optimism?

Tickets to this event are £20 or £27.50 with a copy of The Uninhabitable Earth (RRP £9.99).

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval.
