Subhankar Banerjee, author of Arctic Voices: Resistance at the Tipping Point, had a conversation with James Hansen, head of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York City, about our environment and climate change.
As part of the Lannan In Pursuit of Cultural Freedom series, Banerjee and Hansen spoke of the “non-human” communities that we are wiping out because of oil drilling, global warming, and climate change, which is often times overlooked in mainstream media and government. They also touched upon clean energy, new fuel sources, the XL pipeline, and what it means to our daily life and our planet’s future.
