HOT: Living through the next 50 years

San Francisco
12:30 p.m. | Thursday, March 10, 2011

“Climate change is well underway," writes Nation environmental correspondent Mark Hertsgaard in his forthcoming book, HOT:  Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth, “and we must begin to adapt to it even as we work to stop it."  Humanity has entered a new era of global warming and must think about the problem in a new way, and nowhere is this truer than in California.  We must re-double efforts to reverse global warming even as we install protections against its unavoidable impacts.  But surprise!  HOT describes many existing examples for doing just that.  San Francisco resident Mark Hertsgaard, who has covered climate change for twenty years for outlets including The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, NPR, The San Francisco Chronicle and Time, will discuss the new realities facing Generation Hot and all of us now coping with climate change.
