FIU Geopolitical Summit: An Uninhabitable earth?

March 16, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Monday, March 16 at 2:00pm to 7:30pm, Earlene & Albert Dotson Pavilion, MARC Building – FIU Geopolitical Summit: An Uninhabitable Earth? 

David Wallace-Wells with Michael Grunwald and FIU experts on Global and Local Impacts of Climate Change

 

New York Times bestselling author David Wallace-Wells claims climate change will soon render the world “uninhabitable.” Critics brand him as an alarmist while others say his book, “The Uninhabitable Earth,” is a long-overdue antidote to climate complacency. FIU’s 9th Geopolitical Summit will examine the complex issues related to climate change, from global warming and sea-level rise to more frequent and intense weather events like hurricanes and wildfires. Experts will discuss what this means globally and here in South Florida, as well as possible solutions – from collective action for states and nations to what you and your family can do at home.
