When it comes to our fragile biosphere, what does the future hold? And what do we need to do to secure it? A leading environmental activist and advocate on carbon emissions and population levels, Tim Flannery paints a vivid and terrifying picture of our planet’s potential future in his award-winning books, including The Weather Makers, Now or Never and The Future Eaters.
Tim Flannery will make a rare Canadian appearance at the Chan Centre in support of his new book, Here on Earth: A Natural History of the Planet. Flannery is an internationally acclaimed scientist, explorer and conservationist, and in 2007 was named Australian of the Year.
