The Climate Horizon: A Lecture by Gwynne Dyer

When you talk to the people at the sharp end of the climate business, there is an air of suppressed panic in many of the conversations. We are not going to get through this without taking a lot of casualties, if we get through it at all.
This is the biggest crisis human beings have ever faced, and overcoming it will require an unprecedented level of global cooperation. But there may be a way through it.

UPDATE: No-fee tickets for this event are now available, with a limit of 4 tickets per person.
Overflow tickets previously picked up for the January 24 event may be exchanged for January 23, but must be returned in order to exchange. Due to the popularity of this event, exchange of tickets is not guaranteed.

Only the January 24 event will also be live streamed into the Community Meeting Room.
