8. Reaching for Hope: Transformation of a World in Peril
September 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 7:45 pm
Can humanity pull itself back from the abyss of extinction? In Commanding Hope, Thomas Homer-Dixon, analytical philosopher and author of bestsellers The Ingenuity Gap, and The Upside of Down, offers a compelling corrective to a prevailing pessimism that it’s too late to stave off climate catastrophe and that it’s hopeless to attempt change in time to halt what seems inevitable. Arguing that in the face of the undoubted complexity of the current situation, we may find that uncertainty is not always as dangerous as we think, and surprises are not always bad. Join Tad and podcaster, Ben Charland, as they unpack the potential for hope.
