The Ends of the World: Volcanic Apocalypses, Lethal Oceans, and our Quest to Understand Earth's Past Mass Extinctions

Peter Brannen

Our world has ended five times: it has been broiled, frozen, poison-gassed, smothered and pelted by asteroids.

As new groundbreaking research suggests, climate change has played a major role in the most extreme catastrophes in our planet's history. Furthermore, many scientists now believe that the climate shifts of the twenty-first century have analogs of our former disasters. Join us as award-winning science journalist Peter Brannen takes us on a wild ride through the planet's five mass extinctions, exploring Earth’s past dead ends, and in the process, offers us a glimpse of our possible future.

There will be a book signing following this event.
