America and the Climate Crisis: Winona LaDuke
Presented by the Phil Lind Initiative
The world is nearing the point-of-no-return for catastrophic and irreversible climate change. Without action, the future will be one of mass forced migration, famine, and economic costs in the trillions of dollars. Many of these effects will be felt within the United States, and yet no other country is as deeply divided on climate change. Can the United States overcome its domestic climate crisis to become a global leader for climate action? Or are the forces of extreme partisanship, climate denialism, and dirty industry too deeply entrenched?
Join this talk by Winona LaDuke, a rural development economist, Executive Director of Honor the Earth, and acclaimed author, as she explores Indigenous issues as related to climate change. Her talk is part of the Phil Lind Initiative 2019 series, exploring the theme of “America and the Climate Crisis” at UBC with some of the foremost intellectuals on the climate crisis.
