The increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide due to burning coal, oil and gas represents an unprecedented experiment on the planet Earth. On May 9th Dr. Daniel P. Schrag, director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment, will discuss how the history of Earth and its neighboring planets provide hints of how that experiment might unfold.
Join us as we livestream “The Once and Future Earth: Perspectives on a Global Challenge” lecture and visual presentation from the Adler Planetarium in Chicago. We will be one of 30 planetariums around the world taking part, and you’ll even get a chance to ask Dr. Schrag questions!
We ask that you arrive by 5:15pm. to claim your seat. Any unclaimed seats will be given to walk-ins after 5:15pm.
