Avoiding Climate Catastrophe with Fred Guterl

Curious about climate change? Join one of the leading thinkers on the subject at the Bryant Park Reading Room sponsored by HSBC this Wednesday. Fred Guterl, executive editor of Scientific American, discusses how the overwhelming success of Homo sapiens and ever-growing advances in technology might trigger another mass extinction. More importantly, he offers optimistic advice on what we can do to avoid catastrophe. He'll be in the park at Word for Word on the release day for his new book The Fate of the Species: Why the Human Race May Cause Its Own Extinction.


You could win a copy of Guterl's book tomorrow. The first person to arrive for the event after 12pm will win a copy of the new book. Just find the Reading Room Coordinator and say the secret passcode "Climate Catastrophe".  Reading Room is open weather permitting 11am to 7pm. Books available courtesy of publishers, while supplies last.
