IOES Climate Series: Earth and Human Climate

October 19, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Climate change is the existential crisis of the 21st century. How it plays out, how we can curb it, and how we adjust to the changes already underway will define our generation.

This fall, the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, in collaboration with UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, has designed a new kind of climate series: a four-night conversation between the L.A. community and some of the world’s experts on all things climate.

October 5 – Climate Change Cliff Notes
October 19 – Earth and Human Climate
November 2 – A Tale of Two Cities in a Hotter World: Los Angeles and Beijing
November 16 – Imagined Futures for a Hotter Planet

Thursday, October 19 Earth & Human Climate History

We can get hints about what climate change could mean for our planet and the things that live on it by looking at climate change in the past.

Conversation with

Emily Lindsey, Assistant Curator at the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum

Moderated by
