For twenty years, Mark Hertsgaard investigated climate change for outlets including The New Yorker, NPR, Time, Vanity Fair and The Nation. But the full truth did not hit home until he became a father and, soon after, learned that climate change had arrived a century earlier than forecast, with impacts bound to worsen for decades to come. Mark’s daughter, Chiara, now six years old, is part of what he has dubbed “Generation Hot”–the two billion young people worldwide who will spend the rest of their lives coping with mounting climate disruption.
This event is open to the public.
