Bill McKibben in Conversation With Adriana Voss-Andreae

May 3 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
Powell’s City of Books, 1005 W Burnside Street, Portland, OR 97209 + Google Map

Bill McKibben’s groundbreaking book, The End of Nature, was the first to alert us to global warming. But the danger is broader than that: as climate change shrinks the space where our civilization can exist, new technologies like artificial intelligence and robotics threaten to bleach away the variety of human experience. In Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out? (Henry Holt), he tells of these converging trends and of the ideological fervor that keeps us from bringing them under control. McKibben will be joined in conversation by Adriana Voss-Andreae, cofounder of 350PDX.
