VIRTUAL TALK: “The Ice at the End of the World”with Jon Gertner
March 10, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
THE ICE AT THE END OF THE WORLD
An Epic Journey Into Greenland’s Buried Past and Our Perilous Future
Greenland. Population 56,000. Five times the size of California. It’s covered in an ice sheet 700 miles wide and 1,500 miles long. That’s nearly three quadrillion tons of bone-chilling ice. For the last 150 years, explorers and scientists have sought to understand this remote and mysterious island. At first, they hoped it was a gateway to the North Pole. Later, they realized some of the most profound secrets about our planet and future were locked inside this vast and frozen white desert. Today, scientists from all over the world are deploying every technological tool available to tell us where we’ve been and where we’ve headed—before it’s too late. As Greenland’s ice melts and runs off into the sea, it not only threatens hundreds of millions of people who live in coastal areas. It will also have drastic effects on ocean currents, weather systems, economies, and migration patterns. In this gripping and important book, Jon Gertner takes us to spots few journalists or even explorers have ever visited to understand what Greenland’s rapidly melting “ice at the end of the world” means to us all.
