Program Description

Event Details

Cancelled. The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming by David Wallace-Wells. In his travelogue of our near future, David Wallace-Wells brings into stark relief the climate troubles that await--food shortages, refugee emergencies, and other crises that will reshape the globe. But the world will be remade by warming in more profound ways as well, transforming our politics, our culture, our relationship to technology, and our sense of history. It will be all-encompassing, shaping and distorting nearly every aspect of human life as it is lived today.

Like An Inconvenient Truth and Silent Spring before it, The Uninhabitable Earth is both a meditation on the devastation we have brought upon ourselves and an impassioned call to action. For just as the world was brought to the brink of catastrophe within the span of a lifetime, the responsibility to avoid it now belongs to a single generation—today’s.

Get the book or audiobook on cloudLibrary, OverDrive/Libby, or check out a copy from the library (Vernon Area Library card required).

Interlibrary loan copies of the book are available to Vernon Area Public Library cardholders (while supplies last); registration required.
