“Thirty years ago, we had a chance to save the planet. The science of climate change was settled. The world was ready to act. Almost nothing stood in our way – except ourselves.” Nathaniel Rich, Losing Earth: A Recent History.

Join us for a conversation with award-winning writer Nathaniel Rich on April 8 at Roosevelt House to discuss his Pulitzer Center-supported project “Losing Earth,” a groundbreaking issue of The New York Times Magazine explaining how political and business leaders agreed on the causes of climate change but failed to act. The talk will be moderated by Adam Glenn, a digital journalist and Distinguished Lecturer at Hunter College.

Rich is a writer-at-large for the New York Times Magazine, a regular contributor to the Atlantic and the New York Review of Books, and the author of the novels King Zeno, Odds Against Tomorrow, and The Mayor’s Tongue. His work has appeared in various anthologies, including Best American Nonrequired Reading and Best American Science and Nature Writing.
