Event Details

David Grinspoon, Ph.D., Astrobiologist; Senior Scientist, Planetary Science Institute; Author, Earth in Human Hands: Shaping Our Planet’s Future; Twitter @DrFunkySpoon
Alison van Diggelen, Host, “Fresh Dialogues”; BBC Contributor—Moderator

For the first time in Earth’s history, our planet is experiencing rapidly accelerating changes prompted by one species: humans. Climate change is the most visible, and our current behavior threatens not only our own future but that of countless other creatures.

As we stand at this pivotal juncture, Dr. Grinspoon calls upon all of us to be planetary engineers, conscious shapers of our environment and caretakers of the Earth’s biosphere.

With our future at stake, Dr. Grinspoon shares his 10,000-year perspective by not only asking what kind of future we want to avoid, but what do we ultimately seek to build?

Location: Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middle Field Road, Palo Alto
Time: 6:30 p.m. check-in, 7 p.m. program, 8 p.m. book signing
