Behind The Book with Gaia Vince
“Gaia Vince’s new book should be read not just by every politician, but by every person on the planet.” ―The Guardian
As climate change dominates the headlines, science journalist Gaia Vince is at the forefront of one aspect of this crisis that most don't know is already underway: climate migration. In NOMAD CENTURY: How Climate Migration Will Reshape Our World (Flatiron Books, 2022) Vince breaks down the effects global warming will have on emigration, which will force billions from their homes as countries become increasingly uninhabitable. You will be among them, or you will be receiving them," Vince writes with sobering clarity, arguing that it will be climate migration, not climate mitigation, that will come to define the 21st century.
Professor Schneider states, "The annual losses from weather and climate disasters have increased five-fold in the past 30 years. Losses of property and life are expected to continue to rise because of climate change. Climate change will be a large-scale disruptor, especially in vulnerable regions with fewer means to adapt. Migrations will be inevitable. We discuss the history of migrations and global consequences in the decades to come."
Please join Tapio Schneider, Caltech Theodore Y. Wu Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering, in a pre-recorded conversation with Gaia Vince as they discuss her book NOMAD CENTURY. The pre-recorded conversation will be followed by a live discussion and Q&A of Caltech's involvement in climate science now and in the future, with Prof. Schneider and his Caltech colleagues and students.
