Breakpoint: Reckoning with America’s Environmental Crises

A lecture and book signing with:

 Jeremy Jackson, Emeritus Professor of Oceanography, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Senior Scientist Emeritus, Smithsonian Institution

With discussants:

 Rebecca Henderson, Harvard Business School

John Holdren, Harvard Kennedy School

Daniel Schrag, Harvard University Center for the Environment.

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.

Free parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage. Presented in collaboration with the Harvard University Center for the Environment.

This event will be livestreamed on the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture Facebook page. A recording of this program will be available on the HMNH YouTube channel approximately three weeks after the lecture.
