Humans and the Planet: An Unnatural History

Our planet is undergoing disruptive change on a global scale. Patterns involving rising temperatures, changing sea levels, increasingly common extreme weather events and their implications (including public health) may be driving another mass change and extinction of life on Earth. Climate change biologist Scott Hotaling Ph.D. joins IdeaFestival 2017 to discuss his use of ecological and genomic tools, to better understand how biodiversity is and may be impacted on recent timescales. Whether you live in coastal Florida, the mountains of Tibet or Louisville ramifications of this dramatic change will affect all of us.
