Event Details

Andrew Guzman, Professor, UC Berkeley Law School; Author, Overheated: The Human Cost of Climate Change 

Richard Joseph Jackson, Professor, UCLA School of Public Health; Host of the four-part public TV program, Designing Healthy Communities

In conversation with Greg Dalton, Founder and Director, Climate One

With the Earth running a fever, people in the United States and around the world are vulnerable to climate-driven disease, famine, war and migration. Many scientists warn that a temperature rise of two degrees Celsius - which is now highly likely - would result in catastrophe, and four degrees would be incompatible with organized society as we know it. Many costs of carbon pollution are showing up now in the form of extreme weather, water and resource scarcity and other stresses. Most scientists argue that transitioning to a clean energy economy will reduce these risks resulting from fossil fuel combustion.

Join a doctor and a lawyer for a sobering conversation about building healthier and more resilient communities in California and beyond.
