About the event

A  well-researched article in the NY Times presents a picture of our  climate situation in an optimistic way. That is, we are on or near a  trajectory to minimize future temperature rise to a level that will  avoid major climate disasters. In contrast, the Secretary-General of the  UN, Antonio Guterres, in describing our climate situation at COP27  speaks about "racing toward the cliff with our foot on the accelerator,"  "on a highway to climate hell," and that our temperature- rise goal of  "1.5 C is on life support." This second perspective is well represented  by Katherine Ingram's video.

You are invited to explore both positions represented in the  attachments and participate in a discussion that may help you to  understand our existential situation better and inform your  life-decisions for the future. Hendrik Gideonse, writer and researcher,  will provide a short overview of David Wallace-Well's NY Times article Beyond Catastrophe: A New Climate Reality is Coming into View.
