Sponsor: The Museum of the City of New York

"Confronting the Unthinkable"
Novelist Amitav Ghosh, author of The Great Derangement: Climate Change and the Unthinkable, joins Dr. Naomi Oreskes, author and historian of science + Dr. Elke Weber, psychologist and social theorist, for a wide-ranging conversation moderated by journalist Andrew Revkin about the cultural and psychological context of climate change and the extreme difficulty we experience in facing the facts -- and the future -- head-on.

Conversation Two | 3:30 pm
