This event in the discussion series on tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system focuses on Human and Earth systems interlinkages.
Whilst previous events have focused on the Earth system alone, this webinar will explore the interlinkages between tipping elements in Earth and human systems. Speakers will present historic and contemporary examples of how Earth system tipping elements affect societies and the people within them.
The two talks of the event are:
- The dust bowl: Enduring socio-economic impacts of an environmental catastrophe – Richard Hornbeck, University of Chicago Booth School of Business
- Earth system change and tipping: The case of small island developing states – Michelle Mycoo, University of the West Indies
The session will be moderated by Gabi Hegerl and Caroline Zimm. It will be recorded and posted on the event site a day or two after the event.
