Oct. 8 | 4pm | Jonas 110
Please join Instructor Matt Bauman on for "Now That It’s Too Late?: Climate Change and the Anthropocene". The age of the Anthropocene is a newly monikered (though still unofficial) geologic epoch distinguished by humans’ impact on the earth. The central topics in the presentation include the extinction event currently happening, capitalism here in America and abroad, and the brief history of human evolution, all of which point to an imminent danger facing the globe and particularly life as we know it. The presentation will loosely follow Elizabeth Kolbert’s Pulitzer Prize winning book The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History (2013), New York Times bestselling author Naomi Klein’s critically acclaimed This Changes Everything: Capitalism Vs. The Climate (2014), and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Edward O Wilson’s The Meaning of Human Existence (2014).
