Fall for the Book: The Beck Environmental Lecture with Elizabeth Kolbert

In Under a White Sky: The Nature of the Future, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Elizabeth Kolbert tells the incredible stories of biologists trying to save the world’s rarest fish, researchers developing a “super coral,” and engineers in Iceland turning carbon to stone. After writing her award-winning book The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History, Kolbert now asks the question: “After doing so much damage, can we change nature, this time to save it?” Publisher’s Weekly calls the darkly comic Under a White Sky, “Brilliantly executed and urgently necessary.”
