Thirty Years of Climate Change: What Will the Next Three Decades Bring?
Aspen Ideas Festival, June 2017
We’ve been exploring the concept of climate change since 1988. Yet the problem continues to elude traditional solutions. Maybe the problem is it’s not a problem — it’s an emergent planetary force, and we have to build a new relationship to it. Science has made it clear that it’s a two-way relationship. What have we learned over the last 30 years, and what will the next 30 years bring?
