The Earth System is one of the most complex entities in the universe, driven and stabilized by millions of interacting forces. The sudden anthropogenic re-oxidization of global carbon resources created by long-term geological processes is a major disruption of the planetary machinery. What is the character of this disruption? What are the highly nonlinear impacts on nature and civliation if the intervention goes on? What transformative political, economic and social action is needed to avoid a climate disaster?

Whatever we do or don’t do, the world as we know it will soon cease to exist. Join us in a talk with Professor John Schellnhuber!

Professor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber is Director Emeritus of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and founded the institute in 1992. He is Professor for Theoretical Physics at the University of Potsdam, Senior Research Fellow at the Stockholm Resilience Centre, and Member of the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU).

Free wine, beer, soft drinks and vegan food will be provided – with a great opportunity for networking after the talk.
