6:30 pm — reception
7:00 pm — film screening
8:00 pm — panel Q&A
While climate change is now a broadly recognized phenomenon, the environmental feedback loops that are amplifying and accelerating the process are less well understood. Earth Emergency explains how warming caused by human activity is setting in motion Earth’s own natural warming mechanisms, releasing additional greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, and further heating up the planet.
Originating from a conversation between Woodwell Distinguished Visiting Scientist Dr. William Moomaw and the producers, Earth Emergency features several Woodwell Scientists including founder Dr. George Woodwell, Arctic Program Director Dr. Sue Natali and Past President Dr. Philip Duffy.
