Author Dahr Jamail Presents: The End of Ice

April 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm 9:30 pm EDT

After nearly a decade as a war reporter, the acclaimed journalist returns to America to renew his passion for mountaineering, only to find that the slopes he had once climbed have been irrevocably changed by climate disruption. For his latest book, The End of Ice, he traveled to the front lines of extreme shifts in habitat and ecology: Denali in Alaska, where glaciers are rapidly melting; the Pribilof Islands in the Bering Sea, where increasingly horrific storms and “large-scale die-offs” decimate the local culture; the Rock Islands of Palau in the western Pacific ocean, where corals experience often fatal “bleaching”; and the Amazon, whose famous biodiversity is threatened by deforestation, warming temperatures, and various other human-caused effects. Co-sponsored by [email protected], Green Legal and Education Fund, and Women Against War.
