Jeremy Jackson, Emeritus Professor of Oceanography, Scripps Institution of Oceanography Senior Scientist Emeritus, Smithsonian Institution Mounting environmental crises--extreme weather events, uncontrollable fires, rising sea levels, droughts, and unsustainable agriculture--are pushing America toward a series of alarming environmental and economic breaking points. Jeremy Jackson will examine the country's current environmental destruction and highlight both successful and failed attempts by communities to achieve greater environmental stability. With a call to action, he will offer achievable solutions--and optimism--for tackling this multidimensional challenge. Presentation will be followed by a discussion with Rebecca Henderson, Harvard Business School; John Holdren, Harvard Kennedy School; and Daniel Schrag, Harvard University Center for the Environment. Lecture, Discussion & Book Signing.
