When Bertrand Russell published his book Does Man have a Future? in 1961 at the height of the Cold War, he speculated as to the prospects for this misfit creature in light of the threat of nuclear war. We have somehow managed to survive, for the most part, for the last fifty years. This time, however, we face not only the peril of nuclear war, but also the apocalypse of climate change. Oddly, the policy pundits who have so much to say about Syria or North Korea fall silent on the question of what to do about this overwhelming risk. Climate change offers challenges in terms of policy, culture and education far more profound than those posed by the Cold War. This seminar by climate change expert Daniel Garrett will address honestly the revolutionary changes in practice, policy and education that are required to start to address the current crisis and solicit suggestions and proposals for East Asia, starting with Korea.
