Breakpoint: Reckoning with America's Environmental Crises

Friday, October 26, 2018 - 7:00pm

Breakpoint Jeremy Jackson

Jeremy Jackson of Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Smithsonian Institution will discuss his new book, "Breakpoint: Reckoning with America's Environmental Crises."

Co-written with award-winning journalist Steve Chapple, the book offers practical solutions to minimize the destruction caused by industrial agriculture, sea level rise, wildfires, water mismanagement, and extreme weather.

Through cross-country travels and interviews with farmers, fishermen, scientists, and policymakers, Jackson and Chapple use storytelling to reveal the environmental breakpoints that threaten our wellbeing and achievable steps that can minimize risk, improve lives, and preserve our country’s future.

“Thought-provoking, informative, and, ultimately, hopeful.”—Elizabeth Kolbert, author of The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History
