Speaker: Dr. Peter Carter
Topic: An Intensifying Global Climate Emergency and What Must Be Done.
Time: Nov 15, 2023 13:30 Eastern Time (US and Canada)
We live in the age of abrupt and accelerating collapse. According to NOAA’s The Power of Greenhouse Gases, “We are committing Earth, and ourselves, to climate chaos for thousands of years.” Dr. Carter will present the latest trends and indicators of unprecedented climate system, ecological and biodiversity collapse. Today’s evidence reinforces the Club of Rome’s Case for a Planetary Emergency Plan: “We are living beyond the carrying capacity of the planet, putting human systems on a collision course with natural systems…. The stability of these systems—commons on which we so fundamentally depend—is now at risk.” Peter will then discuss what must be done to mitigate the hell on Earth we are bequeathing all the world’s children…and any future generations.
Our speaker is Peter D. Carter, MD, a retired family and emergency physician with a background in environmental health protection policy, who is now director of the Climate Emergency Institute. He has been an expert reviewer for the IPCC and is co-author of Unprecedented Crime: Climate Science Denial and Game Changers for Survival.
