Award-winning science journalist Peter Brannen will discuss his new book, The Ends of the World: Volcanic Apocalypses, Lethal Oceans, and our Quest to Understand Earth’s Past Mass Extinctions. As new groundbreaking research suggests that climate change played a major role in the most extreme catastrophes in the planet’s history, Peter takes us on a wild ride through the planet’s five mass extinctions and, in the process, offers us a glimpse of our increasingly dangerous future.
