Join co-hosts Katharine Hayhoe and Bryan Giemza for this Climate Readings & Discussions series event, featuring author Bill McKibben. Hayhoe is the co-director of the Climate Center and Giemza is a professor of humanities and literature in Texas Tech's Honors College.

McKibben's book, “Falter,” posits that the entire human game may be playing itself out, covering the dreaded effects of climate change and warning that new technologies such as artificial intelligence could be undermining the human experience. McKibben is the founder and senior adviser emeritus of 350.org. His book, “The End of Nature,” is widely regarded as the first book warning the general public about climate change, published in 1989. McKibben will join Hayhoe and Giemza to discuss the book. The event includes a live reading, discussion and Q&A.
