Elizabeth Kolbert, author of The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History and Under a White Sky: The Nature of the Future, thinks Earth faces an extinction event potentially larger than previously seen in human history – and it’s directly attributable to climate change. But as she discusses this with Bill Gates and Rashida Jones, she makes clear that it’s not too late to avoid species annihilation and global warming’s other alarming effects. Humans must commit to aggressive innovation, governmental cooperation, and individual actions like driving electric cars and eating less meat.
