Adelaide: ‘The Uninhabitable Earth’ Reading Group
October 28, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
We are getting together at The Whitmore (Whitmore Square) to discuss the book ‘The Uninhabitable Earth’ by David Wallace-Wells. Available at Dymocks in-store & online and on Audible. Alternatively, a shorter summary by the author is available at the link (with a 1 hour audio version available under the article): http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2017/07/climate-change-earth-too-hot-for-humans.html
“An epoch-defining book and this generation’s Silent Spring, The Uninhabitable Earth is both a travelogue of the near future and a meditation on how that future will look to those living through it—the ways that warming promises to transform global politics, the meaning of technology and nature in the modern world, the sustainability of capitalism and the trajectory of human progress.
The Uninhabitable Earth is also an impassioned call to action. For just as the world was brought to the brink of catastrophe within the span of a lifetime, the responsibility to avoid it now belongs to a single generation—today’s.”
These book discussions are friendly and everyone is welcome.
The venue has food and refreshments. We will be located in the boardroom upstairs.
