Tipping Point for Planet Earth (MLF)
Monday, August 19, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Anthony D. Barnosky, Professor, Department of Integrative Biology, UC Berkeley; Cox Visiting Professor, Department of Environmental Earth System Science, Stanford University
Monday Night Philosophy highlights Professor Barnosky's research into how global change influences extinction dynamics and biodiversity maintenance. The most recent generation has witnessed humanity changing the planet in both positive and negative ways. Barnosky explains that the key challenge for the 21st century is to ensure that the negative changes, now accelerating, do not limit our capacity to make our children's world at least as good as our own.
