Language and Thinking (L&T) Program presents

Eban Goodstein, Director, Bard Center for Environmental Policy: “Free to Choose: Will Miami Drown, and What Does it Mean to Me?”

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Journalist Jeff Goodell, quoted in a Rolling Stone article this summer: "“Goodbye, Miami: By century’s end, rising sea levels will turn the nation’s urban fantasyland into an American Atlantis. But long before the city is completely underwater, chaos will begin".

Does this have to be the future (for Miami, and New York, and Shanghai, and Buenos Aires, and Venice, and London)?  And what does this mean for the way we all live our lives today?  This talk will focus on fatalism, activism, and global warming.
