Jeff Goodell: Heat
The Wheeler Centre
In this special edition of the Fifth Estate, American author Jeff Goodell joins Sally Warhaft live at the Wheeler Centre for a clear-eyed, urgent conversation about the climate crisis. In recent years, Australia has experienced the devastating effects of bushfires, floods and increasingly frequent out-of-season weather patterns. Yet there is still a sense of uncertainty among communities about exactly how the warming planet will continue to impact us. What will life be like when an average summer’s day is 45 degrees? How will we go about our lives? To help paint a picture of what we can expect in years to come, renowned American author and climate commentator Jeff Goodell travels to Australia to meet with Sally Warhaft for a clear-eyed, urgent conversation about the climate crisis. As a journalist, Rolling Stone contributing editor, and New York Times-bestselling author of books including The Water Will Come and Heat: Life and Death on a Scorched Planet, Goodell has covered energy and climate issues for more than a decade. This is your opportunity to hear directly from an award-winning authority on climate change and to explore how we can live on a hotter planet, and perhaps attempt to cool it down.
