The Future Of Our Grandchildren
By James Hansen & Subhankar Banerjee
13 March, 2013
James Hansen, head of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York City, and author of "Storms of my Grandchildren: The Truth About the Coming Climate Catastrophe and Our Last Chance to Save Humanity" gave a lecture as part of the Lannan Foundation In Pursuit of Cultural Freedom series about our environment and climate change. Subhankar Banerjee, editor of "Arctic Voices: Resistance at the Tipping Point" introduced Hansen and engaged in a conversation with him. 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 Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, and what it means to our daily life and our planet’s future.
