By 1979, we knew nearly everything we understand today about climate change–including how to stop it. Over the next decade, a handful of scientists, politicians, and strategists, led by two unlikely heroes, risked their careers in a desperate, escalating campaign to convince the world to act before it was too late.
Pulitzer Center-supported journalist and author Nathaniel Rich told their stories–and ours–in his extensive New York Times Magazine piece, "Losing Earth."
On Thursday, April 4, 2019, Rich is in his adopted hometown of New Orleans, for the launch of his new book, Losing Earth: A Recent History, to expand on his research and reporting. He will be in conversation with WWNO Coastal Desk reporter Tegan Wendland.
The event is hosted by the ByWater Institute of Tulane University at the Tulane River and Coastal Center, and co-sponsored by the Garden District Book Shop and WWNO.
