For decades scientists and environmentalists have sounded the alarm about the effects of global warming. We are now past the tipping point. As floods, storms, and extreme temperatures become our daily reality, “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” efforts aren’t enough anymore.
New York Times bestselling author and journalist Thomas Kostigen has travelled to the frontlines of geoengineering projects that scientists, entrepreneurs, engineers, and other visionaries around the world are developing to solve the problems associated with climate change. In Thomas’ latest book, Hacking Planet Earth, he dives into the world of the futurist, far-thinking, world-changing ideas that will save us. From giant parasols hovering above the Earth to shield us from an unforgiving sun, to lasers shooting up into clouds to coax out much-needed water, Thomas introduces us to this inspiring work and the people who are spearheading it.
Join Thomas for a conversation on the cutting-edge technology that will enable us to confront the realities of climate change.
Copies of Thomas’ book, Hacking Planet Earth: How Geoengineering Can Help Us Reimagine the Future, will be available for sale at this event.
