THRESHOLD: Biodiversity, Climate, and Humanity at a Crossroads Panel at NYBG March 9 10am-12:30pm

Humanity has reached a crossroads in the effort to combat climate change and protect biodiversity. As Earth’s temperature rises closer to the danger limit set forth in the Paris Agreement, so does the risk of a range of truly catastrophic events, including extreme weather, rising sea levels, and mass extinctions. How have we come so close to a critical threshold? How can we stop ourselves from crossing it? In Threshold, three renowned scholars discuss the implications of the climate crisis for the future of life on Earth.



Presented by the Humanities Institute in collaboration with the Center for Science and Society of Columbia University
