For twenty years, Mark Hertsgaard has investigated global warming for outlets including the New Yorker, NPR, Time, Vanity Fair, and the Nation. But the full truth did not hit home until he became a father and, soon thereafter, learned that climate change had already arrived?a century earlier than forecast?with impacts bound to worsen for decades to come. Hertsgaard’s daughter Chiara, now five years old, is part of what he has dubbed “Generation Hot”-the two billion young people worldwide who will spend the rest of their lives coping with mounting climate disruption.

Mark talks about his newest book “Hot Living Through the Next 50 Years on Earth”, he speaks about the dire consequences of inaction and what we need to do as citizens to take ownership of this role.
