“ In a single generation we brought the planet from a stable situation to the brink of catastrophe... Now we have 30 more years to avert some of these worst-case outcomes by taking action.”
David Wallace-Wells isn’t going to sugarcoat it for you: The climate is in a state of emergency, and we are running out of time to turn things around.
But, can we still turn things around? Yes. With action.
We invited Wallace-Wells to help us kick off Season 6 of The Webby Podcast. Listen to his conversation with host David-Michel Davies, and check out his book The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming.
Plus, watch the moment (below) where David Wallace-Wells presented the 2019 Webby Social Movement of the Year Award, honoring Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg. Sixteen-year-old Thunberg ignited a movement of students who are organizing all over the world to demand action—with a weeklong climate strike coming up Sept. 20-27th.
