About this Event

Join the Center for Energy, Environment and Sustainability (CEES) and the Office of Sustainability on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 7:00pm in Brendle Recital Hall for a keynote lecture by journalist and climate change columnist David Wallace-Wells. 

Wallace-Wells reached widespread acclaim when his 2017 New York magazine cover story "The Uninhabitable Earth" went viral, alerting readers to the very real, very near effects of climate change on our warming world. His book of the same title was published in 2019 and became an instant New York Times bestseller. Neither a scientist or an environmental activist per se, Wallace-Wells is a celebrated journalist who has spent his life living in cities, and adds a much-needed focus on storytelling and the humanities, as well as a look at geopolitical and economic consequences. He will examine how public sentiment and political action are changing—again, much faster than anyone might have predicted, and set the stage for climate action planning at Wake Forest.

Following the lecture, Wallace-Wells will sign copies of "The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming." Copies will be available for purchase at the event.

This event is free and open to the public.
