Elizabeth Kolbert, staff writer, The New Yorker, will present "The Climate of Attention."

Few have covered the climate crisis as deeply and as thoughtfully as Elizabeth Kolbert. Her work includes Field Notes from a Catastrophe (2007), the Pulitzer-prize winning The Sixth Extinction (2016), and her latest Under The White Sky (2021), “a book about people trying to solve problems caused by people trying to solve problems.” She discusses what “a good Anthropocene” might look like, from managing fish in the Midwest to geo-engineering the atmosphere to turn our blue sky white.

Respondent: Samuel Myers, Director of Planetary Health Alliance

Brian Kirbis of Theasophia will open the conversation with a tea pouring. Each conversation will be conducted online by Terry Tempest Williams, writer-in-residence at Harvard Divinity School.

This series is a Constellation Project in partnership with the Center of the Study of World Religions, Religion and Public Life, and the Planetary Health Alliance.
